Some of the rescued individuals refused medical treatment, with a possible mass grave located in the Shakahola Forest, where other followers may be burie.
According to local papers, Nthenge was taken into custody after two children died of hunger while in their guardians’ detention, and after being charged, he was released on a bond of Kshs 100,000 ($700).
