Led by Danstan Omari and Cliff Ombetta, they asked the court to compel the authorities to reopen the premises as soon as possible.
They also stated that their client remains innocent until prove guilty and, therefore, his business should not be dragged into the current situation he is facing
And the the Mombasa High Court, on Wednesday, May 3, ordered that the police boss – Inspector General Japhet Koome – should immediately reopen Pastor Ezekiel Odero’s New Life International Church.
Ezekiel, through his lawyers, moved to the High Court, accusing the authorities of infringing on the faithful’s right to worship what is against the law.
