The A.C.K. Church in Taita Taveta County has interdicted one of its pastors for allegedly impregnating a Form Two student.
The girl, a student at Alan Mjomba Secondary School, was on February lured by the said pastor, who allegedly slept with her in a shamba.
Bishop Dishon Mng’onda of A.C.K. said the church took action immediately allegations against the pastor were brought to his attention.
The student, who was a Sunday school teacher in the church where the pastor was a minister, claimed the pastor “held my hand and took me to a shamba where he slept with me”.
Her parents have urged the government and the church to take stern action against pastors who take advantage of minors.
Alan Mjomba Secondary School principal, where the student was studying, claims that cases of pastors impregnating school-going students in the area have been on an upward trend.
The pastor has been arrested as investigations into the matter continue.
