  2. DRAMA AS WORSHIPPERS ATTACK AND FORCE BISHOP OUT FROM CHURCH Drama erupted at African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa (AIPCA) in Nyandarua County, Kenya on Sunday after worshipers attacked and forced a bishop out of the church compound. The worshippers told Bishop Ayub Kigotho that they neither required his sermon nor services. Efforts by Bishop Kigotho to plead with his flock fell on deaf ears of the rowdy worshippers who sang songs against him. The worshippers locked the gate, forcing the bishop, who was accompanied by a few church elders, to camp outside the church, as a section of priests loyal to the bishop watched from inside the church compound. The six loyal priests, who had arrived at the church early in the morning, broke the padlocks, entered the church and started a worship session as they awaited the bishop’s arrival. Church members, who refused to enter into the church, started a parallel service, which was interrupted by the arrival of the bishop. “Your services are not needed here. Go where you belong, you won’t access the church, you are a troublemaker,” shouted a worshiper as a group of young men pushed the man of God out of the church compound. The worshipers threatened to be violent when the bishop returned into the church compound in the company a team of senior police officers led by OCS Mark Masinde and Administration Police Inspector Samuel Mutua. The rowdy crowd once again forced the man of God outside the compound.
  3. A SENIOR PASTOR OF THE LIGHT CITY CHURCH, EGAN BRANCH, PASTOR GABRIEL AJEAGA, HAS BEEN SACKED FOR ALLEGEDLY SLEEPING WITH FEMALE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH IN LAGOS, ACCORDING TO PM EXPRESS. This was made public by the head of the church, Pastor (Mrs.) Goodness Onyebuchi, at the court during the trial. Revealing details before the court, Onyebuchi said that what informed her decision to sack Pastor Ajeaga from the church was as a result of complaints of his adulterous life as the female members were no longer safe from his advances. The head of the church said that she had to take the decision to save the church and the members from further embarrassment and sexual harassment as she had received several complaints and confessions from members. It was reported that Edo State-born Ajeaga got angry after he was sacked. In the rage, he took a knife and headed to the pulpit to St@bPastor (Mrs.) Onyebuchi and other members during a church service. However, he was prevented from doing so and the knife was recovered from him. He was then handed over to the police at Igando Division for his unruly conduct. It was gathered that Pastor Ajeaga did not spare even the married women in his sexcapades to the extent that he was said to have been eyeing Mrs. Onyebuchi who was also married. The decision by the head of the church to sack the defendant did not go down well with him as he claimed to have been the one that built up the church. He maintained that it was a ploy to send him away at the time the church had grown and that was why he went to the church to cause havoc. He was arraigned before Ejigbo Magistrates court and he pleaded not guilty. Pastor Ajeaga was granted bail but his wife who was supposed to facilitate his bail abandoned him and he remained in prison custody. The wife was said to have believed the allegation by the church, left him to his fate and refused to facilitate his bail. It was on the adjourned date for trial that Mrs. Onyebuchi narrated before the court what transpired before the defendant was arrested and charged to court. She further stated that apart from coming to the church to attack her, that Pastor Ajeaga also bought raw acid which he had planned to pour on her; the raw acid was recovered in his house and brought to the court as an exhibit. During the cross-examination, the defendant denied all the allegation made against him and asked the court for the adjournment to enable him to get prepared to cross-examine the complainant. The prosecutor, Mr. G. Simon, did not oppose the motion as requested by the defendant. Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mr. L.K.J. Layeni, adjourned till 16th August, 2018, for the continuation of the cross-examination by the defendant.

They refused me entering the church saying I should go and look for a jacket or a scarf to cover my shoulder shouting that I’m Naked. I didn’t even talk to them. I just jejely and happily carry my legs and go back. Let me go and sleep biko. Nonsense and ingredients. Ndi over do. Onitsha is too backward for my liking. Is this dress indecent? Are you people kidding me? Even in the village they cannot send me away. It is still in this Onitsha that they commit the highest atrocity. They are not real Christians. The act of sending me away doesn’t portray or show real Christianity. Even they Rev Father cannot send me away. It is all these holier than though brothers that go and do worst at the back.

The deceased, simply identified as Mpofu attended a church service at Bulawayo area of Zimbabwe where she gave a testimony thanking God for the wonders He had done in her life. According to reports by B-metro, Mpofu slumped immediately after sharing her testimony and died in the church. A close relative who asked for anonymity told the media that they were very disappointed and confused as they were not sure if the testimony was the reason behind Mpofu's death. "It is very sad that our family member died this way. She was someone who was a dedicated church member which now turns to be a surprise that she died in the house which she thought was the safest," said the relative. "What is more surprising is when all this happened the church did not notify us that she had collapsed choosing to keep her for six hours. We do not know why they kept her in church when they were aware that her condition was critical, that is why we are suspecting foul play," he continued. The deceased's husband left mourners in shock when he asked all church members to leave the funeral. It was clear that he wanted nothing to do with Universal Church members and their pastors. A pastor who declined to be named said they did not bother attending the funeral as they were not on good terms with Mpofu's family. Mpofu was buried on Monday. Efforts to get a comment from the church on the incident involving their deceased member were fruitless as a pastor that invited B-Metro over for a comment asked for written questions that he said would be sent to their lawyers for a response.

  22. Here is a man, Frederick Beuchi who was addicted to masturbation and pornography, even as a church leader, he wrote; The first time I watched blue movies was way back when I was in class 8 when we sneaked with my friends to a local video hall. I had never experienced it. Having been raised in strict Christian background I vowed to my 13-year-old self never to go back to watching blue movies. That night and for several weeks I was haunted by the pictures from the blue movies kept playing in my mind. In high school, I was an active CU member. In fact, I was appointed as CU chairman in form two. But towards the end of form two, I would see people on Saturdays watching movies in our TV hall. One night I had stayed behind to read, so as I left the hall to dormitories at around 1 am, I saw that TV was still. When I peeped to see what they were watching, right on my face as pornographic movies. I quickly walked away. Here's the problem I could not stop thinking about it. I finally yielded to the pressure. I was so eager for the weekends. But since I was a CU chairman and I had a character to uphold I had to be clever. So I would sneak up to the window and feed my mind with the images. It's dark, it's late, I'm wondering what if the askari come and find me hanging on the window. My grades went low and my concentration in class fizzled out. During holidays, that became the trend. I remember one time in form three my friend and I were accidentally locked inside the computer lab. To me that was it! The whole night I was hopping from one website to the other. I cleared my high school, and thank God my grades were good by my standards! After doing a course in shipping management, I got a job in a company in Mombasa. At that time, I could not help it. I was a slave to pornography. Here's the twist, back at home I was appointed as the youth leader in our local church. I lead church services, I talked with them, but inside I was a mess. In my first job, there was nothing else that I was doing on my desk beside watching pornography. It did not help that they had pretty fast internet. I would quickly finish my work to get back to my hobby. That job lasted for only four months after a big blunder that cost the company a fortune. This was after hours of watching sexual material. My self-esteem was really low, I couldn't even get a girlfriend because in my mind I thought they would know what I was doing in secret. In my second job, same thing, same behavior. In fact, it moved from bad to worse. I had started having severe headaches at this time. I would keep taking painkillers. I started getting hallucinations. When someone was talking to me, I'd blankly be staring at empty space. Then I would scream, to chase away pictures. This happened a lot of time. But in 2013, my sister's epileptic condition had gotten worse as well. I turned prayers, but every time I would backslide back to my vice. There's a time I watched pornography for over 8 hours. Obviously masturbating in the bathroom, feeling bad and still going back to it. I was chained. Every time I watched pornography, I would masturbate: seeking self-satisfaction That really affected me, I would be weak, feeling guilty, self-shame and clearly, my self-esteem was at a low. You see, I couldn't open up to anyone for fear of being judged. I remember my prayer on this particular day. I asked God to exchange my addiction with bhang. I had friends who were addicted to the substance, and they looked happy! I was stressed. Perhaps it would calm me down. On that day I think I was at the end of the road. My phone was the first victim and a voice told me that I had to share my story. The following weekend we had a youth Kesha at my local church and was by default the MC. Funny thing is that the church was unusually full. So I asked if anyone had something to share. No one was standing. Silence I found myself telling the congregation that I had something to share. There was pin-drop silence as I narrated my story. I detailed my account in an intense one-hour long narration. You could hear paper drop. "What's he talking about" their eyes seemed to ask me After an hour of sharing. "I have a feeling God has begun the healing journey with me, I don't know how many of us would like to begin this journey with me," I asked. Nothing. Even my closest friends did not come close to me. I was like the plague. They started judging me, they did not want to be associated with porn guy. I lived with that stigma for a couple of months standing up to the rebuke of telling my story. But a certain pastor in Mombasa helped me with advice in series of meetings. I was on a journey back to recovery. But on my end, the struggle had just begun and it was not easy. Sometimes I could share my story, and still, watch the videos at night. Enough was enough. I met a guy from Teens Development Initiative that ran counseling in high school. They decided to include me as part of their team. We did over 60 schools with storytelling taking center stage. Without realizing it, that period had helped me heal. I had stopped watching pornographic material. My life had been crowded by either the teen initiative or epilepsy awareness events. I tell my story to encourage people that it's possible to unchain from difficult vices. Refocus your mind to less harmful things. I would later be appointed as a board member at National Epilepsy Coordination board for my efforts in creating awareness and reaching out to the affected. Seeking help for my sister really helped me evade the vice that was eating me up.
