war, shouting, demonstrations, name calling,

blackmailing, violence and in court cases over

the issue of the money and management’s of

Churches.

The running, mismanagement, abuse of office

and swindling of Church money drove

twenty Senior Members of The Pentecostal

Assemblies of God to file a petition at Milimani

law Court seeking for the removal of the current

office holders to vacate over alleged corruption

within troubled Pentecostal Assemblies the

house of God.

Khaminwa the twenty applicants Members of

petition seeking several prayers against the

eleventh respondents who are alleged to be in

charge and

stand several accusations of mismanagement,

fraud/embezzlement of funds and

Incompetency.

Under Certificate of urgency the applicants in

their several prayers are seeking conservatory

orders to bar the respondents from managing

the Church assets, withdrawing the members

contributions and acting on behalf of the

aggrieved applicants until the matter filed

before the Court is heard and determined.

The applicant stresses that if the respondent is

not restrained through the conservatory orders,

the applicants rights and to fair labour practise

will be breached.

The applicants in their application argue that,

their contribution held in the scheme is not only

And the move to file the application was

engineered by the accusations of the
