Watchman Who was Guarding Redeemed Church Mombasa Charged Over Pastor's Killing

The security person who was guarding the church where the pastor was shot dead on Saturday at Mshomoroni here in Mombasa has been charged with failing to prevent a crime.

Cornelious Kai, who was arrested on Sunday after Pastor Charles Mathole was killed by unknown gunmen, denied the charges before Mombasa Senior Resident Magistrate James Ombura.

The accused, who had no lawyer, denied that on October 19 at Redeemed Gospel Church in Kisauni in Mombasa County, being a security guard at the church, he failed to prevent a felony.

The accused was ordered to return to court after two-weeks for the mention of his case as investigators try to reveal the motive behind the murder of the pastor.

The killing, which has sparked off protests among church members, left many Christians shocked as the pastor was praying in the church when he was gunned down.

Mathole was killed, church faithful claimed, as he was planning to open additional branches in the town and other parts of the entire coast region.
