The reconstruction of the Kenya Assemblies of God Kiambaa Church in Eldoret, which was burnt during the 2007-2008 post election violence has begun

After the catastrophe that killed 35 people during the post-election violence in 2007/08, Kiambaa Church is seeking donations to reconstruct the chapel. The committee in charge of restoring the cathedral declared in a paid advertisement on Friday that the Lord Sanctuary had remained a “monument of shame.” The advertisement stated, “It has remained a stinging reminder of the extremes of politically inspired ethnic animosity.”

They invited well-wishers to support the campaign, led by Bishop Joseph Kamau Mariko. “Despite considerable opposition from politicians accused of the cruel deed that left a permanent scar not only on survivors but on the Kenyan country as a whole,” the church claimed, “well-wishers have been planning to rebuild the sanctuary.” “The project’s steering committee is inviting well-wishers to help fund the construction by donating to the KAG Kiambaa project.” The church’s rebuilding began last month and is still ongoing.
Supporters can make a donation to Bill Number 222111, Account Number 085000100123. At the height of the 2007-08 post-election violence, more than 35 persons were burned to death while seeking safety in KAG Church in Kiambaa on January 1, 2008. A shrub has grown over the victims’ graves on the deserted ground more than a decade later. Kiambaa’s narrative was fading into obscurity. The majority of the surviving fled to other parts of the country
