A preacher of the gospel has left people talking after he was caught on camera doing the role parents should do.
The priest from Masimba, Kisii County, was caught on camera taking the law into his own hands by caning suspected thieves.
According to the source, the ‘man of God’ says some sins are cast out through prayers and others by caning, which promoted him to clobber suspected thieves.
In the video, two young boys who seem to be schoolboys had their hands tied up when the preacher arrived at the crime scene.
He picks a rod and started canning the young boys as they pleaded to be forgiven. It is not clear what were the items that the two suspects had stolen.
We understand it is the role of the police to enforce the law or rather maintain law and order, which makes it illegal for civilians like the priest to take their law into their own hands and start beating up suspects
Cases of suspects getting killed by the mob are common in Kenya, in some cases, innocent people get killed by angry mobs.
It is the right of everyone, including the suspects, to be charged in a court of law and get the justice they deserve regardless of their offences.
