Seth Mahiga is a former Atheists Society secretary in a Kenyan atheist organization. On Saturday May 29, 2021, he announced his resignation, saying he became a believer in Jesus Christ.
In a statement posted on Twitter, the Atheists in Kenya Society president Harrison Mumia wrote, “This evening, regretfully, our Secretary Mr. Seth Mahiga made the decision to resign from his position as Secretary of our society. Seth’s reason for resigning is that he has found Jesus Christ and is no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya.”
Mahiga worked for the organization for one and half years helping spread atheism throughout the country. Mumia was graceful in his comments toward Mahiga, wishing him “all the best in his newfound relationship with Jesus Christ.”
The Atheists in Kenya Society social media accounts also posted video of Mahiga at Life Church International Nairobi, testifying to the congregation, “I’ve been going through some difficult times in life. I’m so happy to be here.”
The video shows Mahiga kneeling and asserting his faith in Jesus Christ.
The atheist organization was founded in 2016 by Mumia, the first non-religious society to be registered in the country according to its website. Kenya has over 700,000 people who identify as atheists in a country that boats over 52 million residents. Over 85% of the population in Kenya identifies as Christian.
