A group of pastors based in Mombasa County have moved to court seeking to stop Baraka FM from broadcasting secular content.

The clerics, under the auspices of Mombasa Pastors Fellowship Association, have accused the directors of the gospel radio station of converting it into a secular station.

Through Marende Necheza & Co Advocates, the pastors want the station’s broadcast of non-religious content declared a violation of Christian rights.

The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) and the Attorney-General have been listed as second and third respondents.

“The petitioner, being stakeholders, sought the broadcast licence of Baraka FM for the principal purpose of broadcasting the Gospel of our Lord within Coast region,” reads the petition.

Justice Eric Ogola directed parties to file their responses or grounds of opposition to the suit within the next 14 days.

The case will be heard on October 16.
