On Tuesday, Njenga said that claims that the sect is regrouping in Nairobi, Central Kenya and parts of the Rift Valley are untrue. 

He said that the government should swing into action and arrest those claiming to be part of the group. 

He also divulged that the group is not behind the recent killings and other forms of crimes witnessed in these areas.

“There is nothing like Mungiki. It was disbanded a long time ago and if there are members of any such group, they should be handled by the State," Njenga said, as quoted by Standard.

He said that the formers members of the sect have now turned to Christianity and embrace peace after his change of tune. 

Maina, who is the current bishop at Hope International Ministries, insisted that the group is no longer behind criminal activities witnessed in the country.  

He said that the group was only active before and after the 2007 general elections. 

Njenga also said that the group fully supports the government, adding that they are respecters of the rule of law and good governance.
