SDA Leadership Wrangles
Wrangles were witnessed in the Nairobi Central Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church in August 2019
The division within the church saw a group pitted against two pastors walk out of a crucial meeting.
The dispute arose after the pastors and elders differed on the names of individuals to serve in the nomination committee, which is mandated to pick officials to lead the church in 2019.
The two pastors defied opposition from the group and went ahead to table the names of the officials, who were said to be mainly from one community.
