Freemasonry is the world’s largest and oldest secret fraternal society. It brings together men of different characters and backgrounds.
The society is involved with teachings, fellowship, rituals, customs and activities that are concealed from the general public.
The cult’s origin dates back to 1717 when it was established in England and it has grown to different parts of the world over the years.
Here in Kenya, many people have been linked to the secret society including priests, politicians, doctors, judges, wealthy businessmen, teachers, bankers among others. There are freemasons’s halls in Mombasa, Nairobi, Naivasha, Kisumu, Nyeri, and Kiambu.
Some prefer to keep their involvement with Freemasonry a secret while others like Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier have come out openly as members of the secret organization.
Rachier will on this Sunday open up in a candid interview with NTV’s Dancun Khaemba on Freemason in the country.
According to the trailer of the interview, Rachier says that the secret society is not based on any religion.
“Freemasonry is an organization in which you are invited by someone who knows you…It is not based on any particular religion, we have Muslims, Christians, Buddhist. We do not invoke the name of Jesus Christ in our meetings,” he said.
Rachier says he doesn’t regret being one of the men involved with the cult and his family is fully aware of his involvement with it.
He says that they all drive to their gathering points and have a particular dress code. He adds that the members are classified in different levels such that those at the lowest level don’t know what happens at the top level.
“We have those secrets, if you are the low level with don’t tell you. We even don’t tell you what happens at the second level.
