Last year, in a rare incident, Atheists of Kenya Society weighed in on an issue where 17 students of Kabianga High School in Kericho County were suspended for refusing to sit for exams on Saturday.
The Atheists society demanded that the students be reinstated within seven days or file a suit against the school.
“Religious freedoms must be protected. The cultural majority should be prevented from denying others freedom of worship and belief,” the society president Harrison Mumia said in a letter to the school dated January 21.
