Mombasa church in which pastor killed his wife hits headlines again
A Mombasa church in which a pastor stabbed his wife to death before taking his own life at the pulpit has been demolished.
The Ground for God’s Gospel (3G) Ministries at Chembani village in Kiembeni was pulled down on Sunday in the presence of relatives of the late Pastor Elisha Nandoya.
The church was brought down to honour pastor Nandoya’s wishes.
Nandoya stubbed his wife Apostle Anna Mghoi with a knife while she was preaching and later stubbed himself to death on January 5.
The wife died on arrival at a local hospital.
Violet Belia, Nandoya’s sister, said both families had agreed to hand over the property to her family.
“We have decided to demolish the church. The land is now in our custody and we will see what to do with it to help the children of my late brother,” she said.
“All members have agreed that the plot belonged to the late pastor Elisha Nandoya and it was also agreed that the church will possess the power meter and power cable, keyboard and the sound speakers,” read the note.
Chembani village elder Mtengo Mranga Amri asked the government to crack the whip on churches that do not have proper managerial structures to avert similar cases.
