Atheists In Kenya Society Risks Being De-Registered
Home / Atheists In Kenya Society Risks Being De-Registered
The Atheists In Kenya Society was served with a petition before the high court of Kenya filed on 22nd October 2022 seeking to have our society de-registered on grounds that our registration and continued existence is unconstitutional. The petitioner 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 to be retrogressive, repugnant to good conscience and constitutionalism.
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. In 2016, Attorney General Githu Muigai suspended the society on grounds that our registration was a danger to the good order of the country.
We would like to inform atheists, humanists, skeptics, free thinkers and progressives in Kenya and across the world that will do everything within our power to defend our right to remain a registered society.
