Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Prof Kithure Kindiki on Thursday, May 25, 2023, visited embattled preacher Paul Mackenzie's house in Shakahola, Kilifi county.

According to images shared by the CS, Mackenzie resided in a mud grass thatched house that was disorganised almost resembling a garbage site.

Items were scattered everywhere, clothes strewn all over the floor, proving that a hive of activity was ongoing across the dilapidated house.

In a statement, the CS acknowledged that the search efforts across the forest continued uninterrupted and announced that the State will construct security roads within the ranch so as to enhance the smooth search of victims still trapped in the forest.

"The search and rescue efforts at Shakahola forest continue uninterrupted. The Government will construct security roads within Chakama Ranch to enable the ground troops comb the expansive forest and combine forces with the team conducting aerial surveillance to ensure any person still holed up in the thickets is rescued.

"Visited part of Shakahola Forest where rogue preacher Mackenzie was residing, constructed dams for irrigation and was growing various food crops despite radicalising his followers to starve to death," the CS said.

Earlier, the CS oversaw the postmortem of additional 129 bodies that had been exhumed.
