Church fight: Nairobi Central SDA closed,Police deployed [Photos]: The Nairobi Central SDA church was on Saturday closed and congregants told to worship at the nearby St George’s Secondary School.The wrangling Nairobi Central SDA Church has expelled 15 of its members ahead of the annual camp, which kicks off today.At the same time, the chaos that have rocked the church have forced top government officials who worship there to seek sojourn in alternate churches.
The Wednesday’s expulsion of the 15 by the Central Kenya Conference president Pr John Kiragu Ngunyi is expected to add fuel to the fire expected in today’s service. A guest speaker, Dr Lael Caesar, will be presiding over the camp themed “saved by His grace”.

The 15, the church claims, are the main trouble-makers.“This is to let you know that the persons named do not belong to the Seventh Day Adventist faith and their names were dropped from our books,” the letter addressed to all pastors and churches of the Central Kenya Conference says.An earlier meeting held at a hotel in Kilimani, Nairobi, failed to reach a consensus last Wednesday as the warring parties declined to cede ground.
