Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki will on Friday appear before senators to appraise lawmakers on the progress of investigations into Shakahola deaths in Kilifi County.
Kindiki will appear before the Ad hoc Committee on the Proliferation of Religious Organisations, which is investigating the deaths.
The meeting will be held in the Senate Chambers, Main Parliament Buildings.
Kindiki has assured that the world will get to know the truth about what happened in Shakahola.
"On behalf of the government, I want to assure the people of Kenya that the government will inform the public the whole truth of what has happened to our people in Shakahola," the CS said on May 9, 2023.
On Thursday, Kindiki visited Pastor Paul Mackenzie's shanty in Shakahola Forest where he reportedly stayed during his vocational work.
Some 241 bodies have so far been exhumed from shallow graves in the forest since the horrific cultic occurrences came to light on April 14.
Police have so far arrested 39 people and rescued 91 others from the forest.
Mackenzie has been accused of brainwashing the victims into starving to death on the belief that they would meet Jesus Christ.
It has emerged that Pastor Mackenzie feasted like a king as his followers starved to death.
His diet was made public Thursday showing how he feasted on heavy breakfast, lunch, and dinner–while convincing his followers to starve themselves to death.
A detailed menu found pinned at the door of Mackenzie’s homestead revealed his eating routine.
Mackenzie would have a hearty breakfast and skip supper only twice a week.
