  • A Nation Media Group Journalist, a K24 Cameraman and a reporter from Watchman FM were attacked by Members of Jesus Power of Resurrection Ministry in Maralal for covering a case where their pastor was accused of defiling a minor.

    The angry church members roughed up the K24 journalist at the Malaral Court breaking his tripod in the process. 

    The pastor, Timothy Lendunda, was arraigned before Principal Magistrate Richard Koech and charged with two counts of defiling and assaulting a 17-year-old girl.

    Mr Lendunda allegedly obtained the girl's phone number and invited her to his house where he allegedly committed the offence.

    The three Journalists were attacked after Magistrate Koech released Mr Lendunda on a Sh30,000 cash bail.

    They reported the matter at the Maralal Central police station.
