“I came to learn that she was not sleeping at home from my wife after she was arrested with other girls and the pastor and taken to the police station Friday last week. I did not have any money and had to compel Nyanje, the owner of the home, to pay the cash bail for the release of my daughter,” he said.
Kaloleni sub county police commander Ezekiel Chepkwony who confirmed the incident said the pastor would be taken to court to face several preferred charges against him.
He said all the parents and the minors who have been attending the night services at the home would be key witnesses when the case begins.
