Priests Sacked Over Gay Claims Sue Bishop for Defamation

From All Africa (Kenya)-

Three Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) priests sacked after being of accused of practicing homosexuality have sued Mt Kenya West Diocese Bishop Joseph Kagunda for defamation.

This is the second suit they have filed, having challenged their sacking at the Employment and Labour Relations Court.

Reverends John Njogu Gachau, James Maina and Paul Mwangi Warui have each filed a civil case accusing the bishop of tarnishing their names and destroying their reputation.

Through Wonge Maina and Onsare Advocates, the priests accuse Bishop Kagunda of maliciously and spitefully executing and authoring defamatory statements in church, which were repeatedly published in national newspapers, knowing well his allegations were not true.
