The head pastor of Nairobi Central Seventh Day Adventist was on Saturday 20th July 2019, assaulted by angry church members who stormed the building. Jean Pierre Maywa who is the head pastor was assaulted after a heated argument between the factions.
It was gathered that the fight occurred when members alongside the Pastor, gathered to discuss the fate of the faction, Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference (NCC), that wants to split from the church. Prior to the fight, the Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference (NCC) had lost a court case in which they challenged the church’s leadership.
The reconciliation meeting started off with shout matches and led to a fight few minutes after. In the video shared online, some congregants were spotted shouting while others took to the altar to defend the pastor from further assault.
It took the intervention of the police who used tear gas to restore order in the building and the meeting has since been called off.
