As the investigation into the horrific sect in Shikula, Kilifi County continues, dozens of people have been reported missing, including a General Services Unit (GSU) officer from Nairobi, his wife and mother-in-law.
Close relatives claim that between 2019 and 2020, GSU officer Isaac Ngala, 36, his wife Emily Wangi, 35, and his mother joined the cult.
Two of Mr Ngala’s children, Imani Ngala (2 years old) and Seth Ngala (5 years old), have already been exhumed and positively identified by the family.
Fortunately, a boy named Ephraim Gandhi was saved during the ongoing operation that also saw more than 90 graves dug earlier this week.
Ms. Emily Wangi, married her GSU sweetheart after obtaining a Diploma in Community Development from the Technical University of Kenya in 2014.
After a month of living together, Mr. Ngala returns to his job in Nairobi, leaving Emily with her husband in Malindi, Kilifi County, but still able to visit often.
After a year of marriage, Emily found a job teaching Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) at a nearby school in Malindi.
Hana worked as an early childhood development educator until sometime in 2020, when she disappeared.
According to family members, Mr. Ngala joined the deadly cult before his wife, Emily, in 2019.
Mr Ngala quit his job when their second child was just six months old and was persuaded to join Rev. Paul Mackenzie’s controversial Good News International church.
The couple decides to serve God together after a year (in 2020), so Mr. Ngala convinces his wife, Emily, to quit her job and join him at the church.
“He was working as a GSU police officer in Nairobi County, then suddenly quit his job without quitting and joined Rev. Paul Mackenzie’s Good News International Church. Later he convinced his wife Wangi to join him at the church. In fact, he was telling her, work is evil!” said Winnie and Angie, Emily’s sister.
