The split in the Adventist Church in Kenya is far from over as more churches, some even far away from the seat of contention continue to decamp their membership from the GC sponsored Central Kenya Conference to the new Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference.
The Seventh Day Adventist Church Miraa Miraja in Chuka, some 173 kilometers away from the capital Nairobi, on Sabbath the 5th held a business meeting where a resolution was reached to decamp to NCC. At the end of the letter was the sentense ‘Please take note that this decision is NOT contestable in whatsoever manner.
The following day, Oloiborsoito Seventh Day Adventist Church in Kilgoris some 326km away from the capital also delivered their divorce letter from the CKC.
So far at least 10 churches have decamped from CKC and more than 13 churches according to sources with knowledge to the information, have plans to decamp as well.
That the General Conference has not exerted pressure to the CKC to solve the impasse months back is the most disheartening tale of how the Adventist church continues to disintegrate.
Leadership wrangles in the church that quickly took a twist to include politics and tribalism are seen to be a central part of what started this domino and no one seems to have an idea on how to stop it.
The CKC even at some point was seen to be using government agencies to stifle the operations of the NCC. The Church in Kenya needs prayers desperately.
