Mackenzie's Son, Bodaboda Rider Speaks Days After Dad's Arrests, Says This About Him

Dan Mackenzie, the son of controversial preacher Paul Mackenzie, has finally broken his silence over Shakahola massacre.

Dan, a boda boda rider has come out to defend his dad after he was arrested.

Mackenzie was arrested two weeks ago for alleged links to cultism. A lower court freed him this week but he was rearrested and presented to a higher court. Police have said their investigations pointed to signs of radicalization.

Mackenzie is accused of manipulating his followers into seeking salvation, and dozens died in the process of fasting so as to meet Jesus as promised by the man of the cloth.

The court that ordered Mackenzie held for five more days is considering an application for a further 90-day detention.

Speaking to Citizen TV, Dan said his father was innocent, disclosing that he used to be a member of his father's Good News International Church before it was shut down in 2019.

The pastor was arrested twice before in 2019 and in March of this year in connection with the deaths of children. He was released on bond both times, and those cases are still proceeding through the court system.

Dan is the firstborn son of Mackenzie and his first wife.
