The five, who are on suspension, are married with children and are said to be homosexuals without their wives’ knowledge, according to Mt Kenya West diocese Bishop Joseph Kagunda.
They are from Othaya, Karatina, Murang’a and Nyeri towns.
The church tribunal launched investigations into their behaviour mid this year. Bishop Kagunda also noted that some of them offer marriage counselling.
“The church is ashamed to be associated with them,” said the bishop.
The bishop said although the church in Kenya is under pressure to allow same-sex marriages, the Anglican Church in Kenya will not fall prey to such doctrines.
“Anyone who feels that homosexuals and gay marriages should be allowed in Church should find a different denomination because the behaviour does not reflect the institution of marriage started by God,” he said.

Bishop Kagunda further clarified that none of the parishioners alleged to have engaged in the practice with the clergy men were minors.
