Kenyan Church Pastor Bans Female Parishioners From Wearing Underwear
NAIROBI, Kenya (CBSDC/AP) - A local pastor has ordered all women who attend service at Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church to refrain from wearing undergarments while attending so that they can more easily receive the spirit of Jesus Christ.
The Kenyan Daily Post is reporting that a pastor identified only as “Reverend Njohi” claimed bras and underwear are not godly. Additionally, the paper says Njohi wants women who attend service at the church to be “free,” and that there would be consequences for those who do not comply.
According to the UK Metro, most women did, in fact, show up at the church, located in the eastern suburb of Dandora, the following Sunday without any undergarments on under their clothing.
Off the coast of Kenya, police in the island nation of Seychelles say autopsies will be performed next week on the bodies of two former U.S. Navy SEALs found dead on a ship,
Maersk Line said in a statement on Thursday that drugs were found in the room of the Maersk Alabama where the two men were found on Tuesday. The Maersk Alabama was the focus of a 2009 hijacking dramatized in the movie “Captain Phillips.”
A statement from the Seychelles police on Friday said that despite the reports of drugs being found, the police “never released any reports suggesting” that the two Americans may have died from a drug overdose.
The police said next week’s autopsies are expected to establish the cause of the two deaths.
