NAIROBI – Kenyan police have exhumed 21 bodies near the coastal town of Malindi, as they investigate a preacher said to have told followers to starve to death.

Dead children were among those exhumed, and police said they expected to find even more bodies. The shallow graves are in Shakahola forest, where 15 members of the Good News International Church were rescued last week.

Preacher Paul Mackenzie Nthenge is in custody, pending a court appearance.  He allegedly told followers to starve themselves in order to “meet Jesus.” Police arrested Mackenzie on 1 April 15 after discovering the bodies of four people suspected of having starved themselves to death. – BBC.
