It may be said that one of the ways MacKenzie developed a cult was by persuading his congregation that he had the ability to communicate with God directly.

Kenya Red Cross reports over 600 people missing and suspected to be inside the forest as the rescue operation continues, with many more still recovering in the hospital. It is worth noting that while church followers starved to death, the pastor has been eating normally and his family lives in a gated compound in Migingo.

He purchased Times TV in 2016 after one of his followers allegedly sold a home in Lamu for Ksh 20 million and gave the preacher the proceeds.

Two months after giving the money, the individual known as Kennedy Mwacharo is said to have passed away inexplicably.

She is also alleged to have sold her Ksh 7 million property after divorcing her husband and given McKenzie the proceeds as tithes and offerings.

The air hostess took a flight from Nairobi to Malindi before boarding a matatu with her sister and niece to travel to Shakahola.

When the preacher forbade his female disciples from donning wigs, he dropped a bomb. He described it as diabolical. Mackenzie added that utilizing mobile money was evil. M-Pesa, Airtel Money, and Telcom Money are a few of the mobile money options available in Kenya.

The preacher further pushed kids not to enroll in school, claiming that the Bible did not recognize education. The self-proclaimed God’s man also forbade his followers from getting medical care in hospitals, saying that doing so is satanic.

Additionally, Mackenzie has a gospel song called The Antichrist in which he declares that the Catholic Church, the USA, and the UN are tools of Satan.
