A scandal at the Seventh Day Adventist Church is threatening to divide its Central Kenya Conference after a wife of the church elder in Thika was found to be having an affair with the church pastor.
The wife to the church elder reportedly admitted to engaging in a sexual affair with the pastor. This saw the local church temporarily discharge the pastor from his duties.
However, a section of the church elders from the 61 churches from the region (Central Kenya Division) has now moved to court over the issue.
The SDA central region has been deeply divided putting the majority of the church elders on one side and pastors and leaders.
131 church elders from the large central region have stood with the one of their own whose wife was allegedly snatched by the pastor.
The elders drawn from 61 churches from the region claim some of them are being threatened by the church leadership for confronting and taking action against the alleged pastor.
The elders from 61 churches in the 23 pastoral districts claim that some of their own are being threatened by the church leadership for confronting and taking action against the said pastor.
It is alleged that Pastor Robinson Joshua Njuguna had a three-year affair with the elder’s wife.
Those supporting the elder are accusing the church leadership of trying to cover up the incident.
Through their lawyer Dunstan Omari, the elders want to challenge the decision by the Central Kenya Conference and the East Kenya Union Conference for failing to discipline the pastor as per the church policy.

The elders argue Elder Mwaura is the victim but he is being punished by the pastor and some senior leadership of the SDA church from the region.
They faulted church leadership for not taking disciplinary action against Njuguna even though they have evidence against him.
