The Kenyan Atheist Community has woken up to the shocking news regarding an ex-senior member of their Society.
According to a statement issued by the Atheists In Kenya (AIK) President Harrison Mumia, former Secretary Seth Mahiga who unceremoniously left his position last year recently fraudulently withdrew all the funds in their bank account.
Members of the executive committee faced the shock of their lives on Friday, 7th January 2021, when staff members at the Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) Kencom Branch in Nairobi revealed that Mahiga had wiped clean their coffers after apparently “meeting Jesus Christ”.
“We would like to inform the general public, especially the Christia community, that the former Secretary of the Atheists In Kenya Society, Seth Mahiga, has withdrawn funds from the society’s Bank Account without the authority if the executive committee,” read part of the statement.
Further condemning the incident, President Harrison Mumia reassured members of the society that all necessary steps will be made to ensure that the culprit is brought to book.
“This is shameful for a man who claimed to have met Jesus Christ,” the statement noted.
Seth Mahiga declared publicly he had resigned from the Atheists in Kenya Society, where he served as secretary-general for about two years, in July 2021.
At the time, said he had found Jesus Christ and was no longer interested in promoting atheism.
Interestingly, the president of the society, while announcing his resignation, wished Mahiga “the best with his newfound Lord Jesus Christ”.
The statement sounded sarcastic to some Kenyans on social media, considering that the group is irreligious and does not believe in the existence of Jesus or any deity.
During his time at the society, the medical laboratory technician who now practises investigative journalism did such a splendid job of mobilising over 5,000 registered members to fellowship together and taking minutes of their meetings, which would happen weekly in-person, with others attending virtually.
He also coordinated the group’s engagements with partners such as Humanist International and donors locally and worldwide.
