Two Naivasha pastors arrested trying to resurrect baby dead for weeks

A bizarre occurrence has left Naivasha residents in shock following the arrest of two pastors who were trying to resurrect their daughter who died a few weeks ago.

A woman, whose one year old daughter died last month following an accident, arrived in the village and began exhuming the remains of her child accompanied by two the pastors.

The woman, who was crying and wailing hysterically, attracted a huge crowd which witnessed the whole incident in wonder and shock.


The two pastors then started praying for the baby, who had been dead for a month now, trying to bring it back to life. A resident informed the local chief of what was happening who immediately dashed to the location with police to arrested the woman, her sister and the two pastors.

“The woman is yet to come to terms with the loss of her daughter and some men who claim to be religious leaders have taken advantage of the situation,” said Area chief Samuel Ng’ang’a. 

A villager who spoke to the press said that the woman was suffering from depression after she lost the baby.

“These are some of the churches that are misleading followers that they can even raise someone who has died and this is totally wrong,” he said.

The mother of the baby said that she believes her baby didn’t die but was mistakenly buried.
