Prophet Dr David Owuor's Repentance and Holiness Church has denied claims that the Kings Outreach Church was closed over links to the Shakahola tragedy.
This comes after reports on social media claimed that.
The church through Senior Archbishop Major Gen. (Rtd) George Kyaka said the deregistration was after church members unanimously agreed to dissolve it.
He denied any links to the Shakahola tragedy saying the reports claiming so are misleading and malicious.
"In that AGM at the end of the year 2022, it was resolved to dissolve and deregister King's Outreach Church. It is based on that AGM Resolution that Kings Outreach Church was deregistered and therefore the deregistration of Kings Outreach Church has nothing to do with Shakahola," Senior Archbishop Major Gen. (Rtd) George Kyaka
He said, the registrar of societies also implored them to shut the Kings Outreach Church to boost its operation efficiency.
"The resolution was due to counsel from the registrar of societies to ease operations like filing of returns and administration. This decision was reached way before Shakahola happened," he added.
The Star has accessed documents showing that the church held AGM on December 3 during which it was agreed unanimously to Shut the church.
The document showed that the dissolution of the church was on the agenda of the meeting.
"Agenda to Dissolve King's Outreach Church abiding with the provision of its constitution was read before the members. Members present Unanimously approved the process of dissolution to commence," the document indicates.
The registrar of societies on Friday gazetted the deregistration of five churches.
The deregistered churches include New Life Prayer Centre and Church owned by Pastor Ezekiel Odero and Good News International Church founded by Pastor Paul MacKenzie.
