A pastor in Kenya is dropping jaws with his new rule which forbids women congregants to wear underwear to church. The pastor, originally identified as Reverend Njohi, says undergarments are not godly and in order to receive Christ people need to be free in body as well as spirit. In a meeting led by the pastor a law was passed banning the wearing of underwear; Njohi says it is necessary to be closer to God.
Njohi is the leader at the Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church which is located in an eastern suburb of Nairobi called Dandora. This new rule only applies to the women of his church; he told them when they arrive to Sunday service come without bras or panties.
Reverend Njohi said the new rule was made for women so God can easily enter their bodies. He also told those who refuse to comply by continuing to wear undergarments to service will suffer dreadful consequences. His instructions were not just for the adult females but he directed the women who are mothers to check their daughters to ensure they were in compliance with to the new order.
One eyewitness who attends Njohi’s church reported that many of the women who were in attendance did obey the rule of their pastor and showed up without any undergarments on whatsoever. The eyewitness wanted to remain anonymous in order to avoid any repercussions. Many people are questioning why the women in worship need to be “free” in their body and spirit when coming to church while the men are not required to do the same.
Njohi has received wide media attention surrounding his strange new rule. It has left many unhappy with the pastor’s bizarre decree; they feel this is an attempt for him to take advantage of his women followers. Others have called the pastor sick for telling these women that they are being ungodly by wearing underwear to church.
Some the residents in Dandora phase 2 were angered by this unreasonable directive for the women of this church. On Wednesday they vandalized the church building by demolishing windows, doors and walls of the church. They said the Lord’s Propeller Redemption church is spreading immorality and is not really the Lord’s church.
The actual head of the church, Pastor Michael Mulama, said the angry mob robbed him and took money and cell phones before they marched him straight to the police station. At the time of this report the police were still waiting for Mulama to record a formal statement.
