, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 9 – Attorney General Githu Muigai on Sunday said he will constitute a task force that will review the Societies Act on registration and operations of religious communities, churches, mosques and temples in the country.
According to a message posted on the Facebook page of State House, the AG forwarded the proposal which will come up with a framework that will address controversies arising from religious communities in the country.
“The Attorney General has proposed to the government a framework for the registration and management of religious communities, churches, mosques and temples,” the message indicated.
The framework will be seeking to ensure religious groups in the country exercise transparency and accountability.
It will also be seeking to ensure that religious groups operate under the guidelines of spirituality they claim to promote through their organisations.
The proposal comes after Kenya Television Network (KTN) exposed Pastor Victor Kanyari of Salvation Healing Ministries last Sunday.
Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has already directed the Criminal Investigation Department to investigate Kanyari to ascertain whether he has been obtaining money by false pretences, cheating and other acts that contradict law and order.
