As the exhumation of bodies began its sixth day today, the local media reports that the General Service Unit (GSU) officer who served in Nairobi and his family are among those still missing.

A multi-agency rescue squad is currently camped on preacher Paul Mackenzie’s property in Kilifi looking for his followers who have been starving to death.

Isaac Ngala, 36 reportedly quit his military job to join Mackenzie’s church between 2019 and 2020 together with his wife, Emily Wanja, 25.

Emily’s sister, Winnie Wanje recounted how the soldier decided to stop working and convinced his wife that God hates working.

“He served as a GSU police officer in Nairobi and then suddenly left his employment without resigning and joined the church. He then convinced his wife to join the church by telling her that working was ungodly,” she is quoted to have said.

“The two are among many people who are missing. We were shocked when we established that the bodies of my sister’s two children had been exhumed.”

Ngala, after quitting the military job, relocated with his family to live on a piece of land that pastor Mackenzie donated to them.

During the fasting, as people were dying out of hunger, Emily’s father-in-law reportedly managed to escape from the forest on March 15 to disclose the happenings, compelling their family members to storm the forest to rescue them.

However, they only managed to rescue the couple’s eight-year-old son, who was on the brink of death after going for days without food, tuko.co.ke reports.

The unhappy family members returned home and reported the matter to the police, which triggered the ongoing intervention by the authorities and the exhumation of over 90 bodies from mass and single graves scattered across a large land belonging to the pastor.
