Atheists in Kenya (AIK) secretary Seth Mahinga has resigned from the society.

“This evening, regretfully, our Secretary Mr. Seth Mahiga made the decision to resign from his position as Secretary of our society.”
“Seth's reason for resigning is that he has found Jesus Christ and is no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya,” Mumia said.

“We wish Seth all the best in his newfound relationship with Jesus Christ, we thank him for having served the society with dedication for the last one and a half years.”
