Church members stage protest over missing money

On December 29, members of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK), St. Matthew’s Kiangima Parish in Embu West Sub-county, Kenya, staged a protest against the church committee’s alleged financial mismanagement.

During the protest, church members held up signs and twigs while screaming for the immediate firing of the entire committee.

The report that their Vicar, who was transferred, hadn’t received payment for the previous two months despite them paying their dues for church development was what started the protest.

They revealed that the amount of their contribution was Ksh8 million. Additionally, they claim that Ksh5 million cannot be accounted for because Ksh3 million was used to settle the diocese cess.

A member Joyce Kiuria said;

“Our plea to know why our Vicar has gone without pay for two months have fallen on deaf ears as none of our elected officials is willing to come clean over the matter.“

They are also threatening to close down the church until they’re given an explanation on how the money was spent.
