4 MISSIONARIES ON TRIAL FOR INCITING VIOLENCE IN KENYA

Four Christian missionaries in Kenya have been charged with incitement to violence for distributing pamphlets considered anti-Muslim. U.S. nationals Andrew Saucier and Paul Garcia and Kenyans Michael Mullei and Patrick Mutinda were arrested on Oct. 18 in Ngong after distributing pamphlets outside a primary school the previous day. The literature read, “Prophet Mohammed is not a true prophet” and “Allah had no son,“ prompting angry Muslims to protest outside the Calvary Baptist Church where the four missionaries serve. As the trial for the four began on Monday, Oct. 23, police were forced to fire live rounds and teargas above the heads of the crowd to disperse the protesters, forcing the court to adjourn the hearing. Magistrate Hellen Wasilwa warned the lawyers for the Islamic community, saying, “The court wants peace as it hears the case. They are not conducting themselves in orderly manner and they have jammed the court.” If convicted, the four could face fines and up to three years in prison. They are currently free on bail.
