“A 27-year-old woman has dragged her husband of seven years and two
bishops to court for allegedly attacking and injuring her in an attempt
to force her to join a ‘strange’ church.
The Nairobian revealed that Christine Mueni claims her husband George
Morara, Pastor Maxwell Mugendi Omari and Bishop Timothy Migwi of

August 19, Makori, who is an SDA faithful, asked Mueni, a practising
Catholic, to accompany him to Bethsaida Church where she felt uneasy and
left before the service was over.
Makori reportedly insisted that she joined him for prayers twice and
threatened to terminate their marriage if she did not play ball.
She allegedly agreed to accompany him, but upon arrival, Makori joined
two bishops for over an hour in their office, and when they were done at
5pm, one of the preachers demanded she give them photos of all her
siblings and parents for prayers aimed at improving their lives.
A shocked Mueni turned to Makori for answers on what the church was all
about, and that, she claims, was when the three descended on her and bit
her in the process.
Her screams attracted boda boda operators whose arrival enabled her to
escape. She reported the matter to the police. The three denied the
charges and were released on a Sh10, 000 bail each.
Their trial begins on November 25.“
