ADDENDUM::I am not a homosexual, says suspended Mt Kenya Anglican priest

A senior Anglican Church reverend at the centre of a gay sex scandal dismissed claims he has been sleeping with fellow men as "distasteful" because he is "a morally upright man with a loving wife and three adoring kids."

Archdeacon John Njogu Gachau now under suspension for allegedly luring young boys into sex in his Parish house is second in command after the Bishop.

"These accusations are false. I don't get why a man can level such abhorrent claims against a servant of God. I have never had sex with a fellow man, this is just distasteful," swore Gachau when The Nairobian visited him at his Ngare Nyiro home where he has retreated following the suspension.

Mt Kenya West diocese bishop Joseph Kagunda said the church had received a complaint early last month and investigated the claims before taking disciplinary measures.

A soft-spoken archdeacon Gachau, who vied for the Bishop seat in the 2004 election, says his conscience is clear and his parishioners could bear him witness that he has stood for "the good of society and well-being of every person I met."

Gachau, until he was shown the door two weeks ago, was the minister in charge of St Andrew Anglican Church Kagongo Parish in Othaya, Nyeri County.
