Kenyan man demands refund of all his offerings he gave to church from 1998-2018

An unhappy Kenyan man has written a strongly worded letter to his former church to demand a refund of all the offerings he gave to the church from 1998 to 2017.

According to the man identified as Dishon Kinyanjui Kinuthia, the Revival Mission Church, Kabete, in Nairobi risks suffering dire consequences if the sum of 58,000 KES doesn’t hit his account on or before November 31, 2020.

He explained that he was an active member of the church from 1997 to 2018 till he left and therefore demands a refund of the offerings he is supposed to have given to God because he did not give them voluntarily but rather “undue influence, duress, and intimidation.”

He took to Twitter to share a copy of the letter addressed to the leadership of the Revival Mission Church dated October 30, under the heading: “Refund of offerings contributed from 1998 to 2017.”

He has vowed to take legal action against the church if it fails to honor his demand for a refund of all his offerings given to it over the period.

It is not clear from the letter how Dishon concluded that the offerings he gave to the church for over two decades would amount to 58,000 KES.

If the church fails to pay him and the matter gets to the court, the applicant might be faced with the burden of first of all proving that he indeed made the offerings to the church over the period in question, and secondly whether indeed he did so “undue influence, duress, and intimidation” as he has claimed in his letter.

Dishon’s matter is an interesting one that may open a floodgate of similar demands by other disgruntled Christians across the world, depending on the court’s verdict.
