Four people were found dead and nearly a dozen others hospitalized in Kenya’s coastal Kilifi County, after being rescued while waiting the imminent end of the world.
Police said the group was found in a forest where they had been living for several days after being told by a local preacher to fast while “waiting to meet Jesus”.
The authorities said they rescued 11 people six of them were emaciated and in critical condition.
Police said they will resume a search for more members of the group following today’s reports that others were still in the forest.
Police are reported to have found a fresh grave in the forest which will be investigated.
The worshippers belong to Good News International Church that is led by a local pastor who has been on police radar for allegedly urging his followers to starve to death in order to reach heaven faster. END.
