Youthful Kenyan Pastor accused of sexual harassment

Published

on

Just a few days after two popular Kenyan Gospel singers hit the headlines over a sex scandal, yet another girl has come out to guns blazing with accusations about another self-proclaimed man of the cloth taking advantage of young girls.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday, the girl – Purity (username: @NdutaSs) – narrated how a prominent youthful pastor – Ken Gomeri – allegedly tried to solicit for sex from her and her friends three years ago.

According to Purity, she – alongside two other friends, then all between 18 and 19 years old – had gone to buy dinner at a popular mall on Thika Road in June 2016 when they bumped into Pastor Gomeri; they recognized him because he previously frequented their high school to preach and coached their hockey team every so often.

After exchanging pleasantries, he allegedly offered to buy them dinner during which he spoke about “things that are being said about him online that are bothering him.”

“The first red light was on the same night, he called and asked to come over to our house at around midnight, but, it’s Pasi (Pastor), we didn’t think much about it. Next morning, we leave, so it’s Ken, his friend (man) and three of us girls, going to Nyeri in his infamous Subaru,” narrated Purity.

She added that Pastor Gomeri’s friend stopped to buy alcohol on their way to Nyeri for a hockey tournament and he (Gomeri) even offered to buy them (Purity and friends) as well but they declined.

“We decided to spend the night in Nyeri because it was really late at night. Now that’s where we started getting scared. He insisted that we’ll all sleep in one room because he didn’t have the money I guess. It had two beds so we thought it would be us girls one bed, boys together,” she stated.

Purity added that the preacher, however, declined to sleep on the same bed with his friend saying “circumcised men don’t share the same bed.”

Hence, Purity and one of her friends shared a bed with Gomeri while the third girl shared the other bed with his unidentified friend.

She further narrated how, during the course of the night, Gomeri tried to touch them inappropriately while talking about “how turned on and hard he was.”

“Next morning he continued trying to have sex with us, touching is inappropriately, talking about sex and how disappointed he was. We drove back up to Nairobi, I was dropped off first but two of my friends went with him, he was supposed to drop them off in Roysambu,” she said.

“So, they ask if (he) remembers their house in Roysambu. He says yes and it’s agreed that he’s taking them home. Next thing they knew, they were in Kasarani. He insists they need to eat supper at least. On getting to his place, it’s packed with people (his team that does mission).”

Purity further added: “This put them at ease. But then in 5 minutes everyone leaves. This just leaves them, another male and him. He gives excuse after excuse as to why they shouldn’t leave. That they need to sleep over. When they finally put their foot down he got so upset. The other male in the house ended up taking them home.”

Pastor Gomeri, who is also behind the ‘Badilika’ boot camp for high school teenagers, is yet to respond to the allegations.

Published

on

BY KAMNAO ANTHONY

KEMEN Summit 2019 and dinner will take place in Atlanta Georgia on June 29, 2019 starting with Workshop and Networking from 10.00 A.M. to 1.P.M.

This is a special rare occasion to brush shoulders with a diverse group of visionary Diaspora leaders chosen from business, Mentorship, Financial guidance, Literacy, Motivation, Immigration experts, Education, Health, Wellness and many other key speakers with a wide range of topics.

These are men who clearly understand that change and effective progress are only possible with a good vision, determination and ambition,.. therefore your actions and attendance counts greatly as you may be impacted and be part of that change.

In the evening, the program continues starting from 4 P.M. to 11 P.M.

There will be Panel discussions, various speakers, formal dinner and ending with KEMEN awards.

We need you to be the architects of a sustainable future and as Diaspora men that are looked upon as men of impact in all fields, a large representation will make the occasion to arouse the much needed awareness that can make this noble movement a force to reckon with.

KEMEN aims at empowering men to believe in themselves equip them with tools of knowledge through workshops and conferences to enable them attain the grandest height possible.
Men empowerment is the core to sustainable development, wellness, stability, and progressive societies anywhere in the world and as such KEMEN are on track.

Women are now breaking the glass ceiling and as the number increase, men though not competing, should be on the forefront in welcoming them to a world they have already dominated.
The only way to do that, is to remain on top and empower more and more men so that their role as head of households cannot be shaken or taken for granted.

We need all men to work together to pursue a sustainable path that leads to economic growth of the communities that we reside in here in America and still, even extend the same to our motherland.
While doing so, there are many challenges as we have to be the custodian of social justice, economic, health, education, wellness and even political stewardship.

We live in volatile times and hence we should always be on top to make great advances towards eradicating poverty, ignorance, corruption, moral decay and diseases as these are the ills of any society, and the same can only be achieved if we work together as a team.

We all the same must be aware that inequality persists but that can be narrowed to prevent it’s growth.
Real impact presents many challenges but as a united front, we are confident that we can meet them to yield change and the much needed progress.

Most of us grew up in a country that had many problems ranging from unable to get clean water, education to even starvation hence the need to make sure that those issues are addressed and if possible show our leaders back home how it can be achieved.

We live in a developed nation where we see things done in a more perfect way and as Diaspora men that are looked upon, we owe a duty to our children so that they may never go through some of the injustices we had to go through.
When we formed KEMEN we were aware that change does not simply happen by itself for the same has to be pursued with vigor and by all in society.

We hold family conference calls and also conference calls which are not limited to men as ladies also join us to discuss diversified issues.

We in KEMEN will not accept an aircraft that only allow a few to board while leaving the rest behind and that is why we are appealing to all to join our movement and act as ambassadors for the common good to encourage others to join for that is the morally correct thing to do.

It is the smart choice to do to avoid being left behind in this sustainable journey that we all need to take as it is in everybody’s best advantage and interest.
We all know that people in the Diaspora are busy and hence it may somehow demand long-term sacrifice but in the end it will bear fruits.

Everyone therefore has a role to play in empowering men and bring Diaspora men to the table as key partners and to do that, it embodies the spirit of shared responsibility that is essential for achieving a better world.
During the 2019 KEMEN Summit in Atlanta successful businessmen will deliver speeches of great topics that can have a great impact in your life so do not miss this great chance.

We will also honor such men and others nominated in order for them to continue impacting and empowering men in the Diaspora and beyond.
KEMEN will later diversify and touch other areas that can affect the empowerment of men such as Human rights abuses, poor working conditions, health, immigration, discrimination, and even corruption and decision making to determine best suited leaders back home.

We will do that as we strongly feel that the mentioned issues can affect both our long-term investments and growth prospects.
All participants are requested to get involved in KEMEN agenda and also consider how you can use your expertise and resources to help promote and impact all members that have joined and will continue joining.
We need you to advance innovations and forge collaborations with others that have already made great impacts on some of the toughest common issues we face.

KEMEN is firmly committed to the power of partnerships, working with businessmen, scholars, Health experts, Tax experts, immigration lawyers, insurance, Religious men, talented men and women and in short all key stakeholders to enhance progress on all our objectives.

The immediate challenge is achieving the required impact to show a total change that will flow to all our members may it be financial, wellness, benevolence benefits but at this stage we all can boast that we have made great progress.

Much has been achieved since inception as we have held several successful meetings, direct conference talks, and social gathering all with the purpose of impacting men and not leaving behind our women in the Diaspora.
Even though our ladies have been identified as a strategic player in reaching some of our goals, there has been no clear role for combined business in our objectives but where man succeeds, the woman will always be there and with that in mind KEMEN has a UNIVERSAL agenda.

We do hope that after the summit, there will be urgent actions towards a new dynamic movement to push forward our set up goals.
We will need your support though and your attendance, mentorship and participation will be greatly appreciated as we move forward from summit holders to an all financially stable action group that can effectively realize our set up goals.

In KEMEN we will connect the dots in the ever-growing field of responsible business initiatives, Wellness while impacting our men.
We therefore appeal to all to work together on an entirely new gigantic scale – collaborating and co-investing, share risks, realize opportunities by networking here in America and later globally to engage in business by simply using the potentials God has given us.

We have seen how powerful such collaborative efforts can achieve great things and ours is just the beginning and sky is the limit statement is just an understatement for we can go beyond.
KEMEN has helped generate a major shift in Diaspora mindset from the time it was initiated for as of today our members of great impact are now becoming role models of a better world.

Help us to respond to the urgency of our many Diaspora challenges to build a better tomorrow that will be of great impact to our children that we are raising here and the same to be extended to our brothers and sisters back home.

Why Mututho wants alcohol prices reduced

Published

on

Former National Campaign against Drug Abuse (Nacada) Chairman John Mututho wants the prices of alcohol reduced.

According to Mututho, the increase in the price of alcohol in the 2019/20 budget will promote the production of cheap illicit brew.

CHEAP LIQUOR

Mututho wants the government to lower taxes imposed on approved alcoholic drinks which will make it affordable for the common mwananchi, hence reduce the consumption of cheap liquor which pose health hazard.

While addressing journalists in Nakuru, Mututho pointed out that cheap liquor has had negative impact on the general population and the increase in the price will only worsen the situation.

He has called upon the National Treasury Cabinet Secretray, Henry Rotich, and other stakeholders in the industry to work together to ensure the prices remain normal for the sake of saving lives of consumers.

UNSAFE BREWS

“The new policy will promote the use of unsafe traditional brews and development of harmful counterfeits. I totally disagree with the move to increase duty on alcohol,” The Standard quoted Mututho.

Among the highlights on the 2019/20 budget that will cost the country Sh 3.02 trillion is the increase on betting tax, boda boda insurance and alcohol prices.
