Man demands refund of offerings from church, Threatens court action
NEWSMAN – A Kenyan man identified as Dishon Kinyanjui Kinuthia has written to a church he claims to have attended between 1998 to 2017, demanding that offerings he contributed between that period be refunded November 31, 2020, or else face legal action.
Kinuthia who was formerly a member of the church, Revival Mission Church, Kabete, in Nairobi, Dishon alleged that the offerings were not voluntary and blamed his givings on undue influence, duress and intimidation, and warned that failure to refund the amount he estimated at 58,000 KES will attract serious consequences.
“I hereby demand reimbursement of all the monies I contributed to the church while I was a member from the year 1997 to 2018. This is approximately KSh 58,000 from my estimated calculations. I confirm that the contributions were not voluntary and blame this on undue influence, duress and intimidation(if you do not give offerings you will go to hell), Vanguard reported.
“Kindly deposit the amount in my bank account enclosed with this letter and not later than November 31, 2020. Failure to pay the stipulated amount before the said date shall prompt legal proceedings,” Kinuthia’s letter read.
