A cult leader in Kenya has been charged with murd£r after more than 400 bodies were found buried in shallow graves in a remote forest in the east of the country.
Survivors and victims’ families have said Paul Mackenzie urged followers to fast in order to “go see Jesus”.
He and 29 others pleaded not guilty in a court in the coastal town of Malindi.
Mackenzie has already been charged with committing acts of terr0r, child cru£lty and t0rture, which he denied.
Police and prosecutors allege that apart from starvati0n, some victims may have been strangl£d, suff0cated or b£aten to d£ath using blunt objects.
The 30 accused have been charged with murdering 191 people.
