The Anglican Church of Kenya has asked one of its priests to step down for allegedly practicing homosexuality.
The priest, who the church said had served in several parishes within Mt Kenya region, is accused of enticing four young men to engage in homosexuality.
The young men are said to have been spending nights with him in the vicars’ house.
The priest reportedly befriended and requested them to visit him at the church for spiritual guidance but would “seduce them and force them to engage in homosexuality.”
He is said to have pleaded with the young men not to inform anyone. The letter of suspension was read during a Sunday service at the Nyeri St Peters Cathedral last week.
