The Atheists in Kenya Society (AIK-S) has accused former Secretary Seth Mahiga of withdrawing funds from the society’s bank account without the authority of the current executive committee.

The society's President Harrison Mumia said that members of the Executive Committee were shocked when they visited their bank only to find a huge sum missing from their account.

"The new executive committee, including myself, the incoming Treasurer Samson Mbavu and the incoming Secretary Mary Kamau had visited KCB today only to be informed that the former Secretary Seth Mahiga, had withdrawn funds from the Atheists In Kenya Society bank account without our authority," Mumia said.

Mumia further said the act by Mahiga amounts to theft from the society adding that the funds belong to its members.

This is not the first time the organisation has been at loggerheads with the former secretary.

Back in October last year Mumia described Mahiga as a crooked, devious and crafty individual.

Mahiga has since resigned from the organisation.

In a press statement released by AIKS, Mahiga's reason for the resignation was that he had found Jesus Christ and was no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya.

He had served as the secretary for a year and a half.
