‘I’m not a Freemason’ – Otiende Amollo sets record straight after his law firm co-owner Rachier went public
Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo has rubbished reports that he could be a member of the secret sect 'Freemasons' after his law firm partner Ambrose Rachier publicly acknowledged being a member.
In a tweet, Amollo said that he was neither a member of the sect nor was the firm law firm Rachier & Amollo LLP associated with Freemasons.
"Interesting times! Have seen an interview by my law firm partner Ambrose Rachier on Freemasonry! I am not & will never join Freemasonry! Let it be known that the law firm of Rachier & Amollo LLP is not associated with the movement! (sic)," Amollo wrote.
Speaking to a local TV station, Rachier said that Freemasonry was started and inspired by King Solomon, from whom they have allegedly borrowed a lot in terms of success and values.
Rachier claimed that the movement recently lost their global leader, Queen Elizabeth II.
"We recently lost our head, Queen Elizabeth II; we prayed and honoured her," Rachier said.
According to Rachier, members of the movement entail the society's richest to ordinary people, engaging in charity activities.
"Those are the things you need to correct; you will find the most ordinary people and people you never thought were Masons here - just enjoying themselves and talking about charity; helping people or also being helped," he said.
The lawyer disclosed that he was introduced to Freemasonry by two of his friends in 1994.
The lawyer, who has risen through the ranks to become a senior officer in freemasonry, disclosed that at the time of his introduction to the secret organisation, his friends talked him through, after that, he underwent an interview, got accepted and initiated.
"I was introduced to freemasonry by two friends in 1994. They talked me through it; I got interviewed, accepted, got initiated and I've since grown to be a senior officer," he narrated.
Rachier has no regrets
Notably, Rachier maintains that he does not regret ever joining the secret group revealing that the secret group features notable dignitaries such as the chief justices of Kenya.
"I do not care to say I am one of them, and I do not regret it; my family knows that today Ambrose Rachier is going to the meeting," he stated.
Rachier says that Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that unites men of good character who, though of different religious, ethnic or social backgrounds, share a belief in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of mankind.
