The Atheists In Kenya Society has today (26th September 2022) been served with a petition before the high court of Kenya seeking to have our society suspended on grounds that our registration and continued existence is unconstitutional. The petitioner in this petition is former Juja MP, Dr. Stephen Ndichu.
This petition is aimed at fermenting the notion that Kenya is a nation by and for believers in God only. It is an assault on religious freedom and an insult to the diversity of the Kenyan people. We find the petition repugnant to good conscience.
Dr. Ndichu is a Christian fundamentalist who seems to harbor paranoid fantasies about the dangers of atheists existing in Kenya. He sees enemies where there is none.
We are surprised, but not shocked. Religion has historically inhibited progress.
We would like to inform atheists and Kenyans at large that will do everything within our power to defend our right to remain a registered society. We urge all RIGHT THINKING Kenyans to support us as we fight this disgraceful petition.
