Religious leaders from Sameta Sub County in Kisii County have decried rampant theft of church equipment and chairs and urged security officers to beef up security to reverse the trend.
Led by Nyagiki Pentecostal Assemblies of God ( PAG) pastor, Geoffrey Gwaro, the leaders said thugs had raided the church twice in a month and stolen communication equipment and chairs, terming it shocking and unacceptable.
He appealed to members of the public to report to the church leaders and police whoever they find selling the items so that he or she can be arrested and prosecuted to deter others.
“Criminals who broke into churches and steal live in the community and are known. I urge them to stop raiding and stealing from churches,” Gwaro said.
The theft comes barely a month after security officers arrested ten suspects from Otamba sub location, Nyaribari Chache constituency in Kisii county in connection with the torching of five churches- St Monica Otamba Catholic, Nyangeni SDA, Worldwide Gospel church, Pentecostal church and Legio Maria.
