Kenyan atheists are now offering medical and funeral cover in a drive to register new members.
The move comes days after the Atheists In Kenya Society (AIK) suffered a major blow when its national secretary stepped down after becoming a Christian.
The AIK is thus calling on anyone that considers themselves “an atheist, agnostic, free thinker, humanist or sceptic” to sign up for membership on their website and settle a given fee to qualify for the medical and funeral cover.
According to Pew Research, an American research firm, over 97 per cent of Kenyans identify with a religion.
The AIK society is often featured in local news for its views on different issues that touch on religion.
