A 36 Yr old mother of two has been arrested at Baraka estate in the outskirts of Nanyuki town after she pulled out her two children from school claiming that education is satanic.
Esther Njeri claims that the real education is the biblical one and that the modern day science is a reflection of evil.
This is contrary to her achievement in the same education she demonizes since she is a holder of bachelors degree in commerce(BCOM) and being a certified public accountant of Kenya (CPA)
In the mid-morning incidence, Esther was arrested in her home where she was found in the company of her two children a daughter aged 15 who was in form two and a son aged 8 who was in grade 2.
She insists that she has known true knowledge that is the knowledge of the lord insisting that Jesus Christ did not attend any school thus no need to take her children to school.
Quoting the biblical tale of Shadrack Meshack and Abednego who were thrown into a fire furnace, Esther says she is ready to go through anything but she will not take these children to school
Marura Location chief Patrick Mahinda said that he was alerted by village elders of the two children not attending school and upon interrogating their mother, she said that her faith does not allow her to take them to school.
Mahinda has cautioned against such misleading faith saying that the government will not relent in its efforts to ensure that every student attends school.
Esther is being held at the Nanyuki Police station where she will be arraigned in court after investigations are over.
