Pas­tor Mar­garet Machu­ki is the Kenya Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Re-For­ma Glob­al, a train­ing insti­tu­tion of the Chris­t­ian evan­gel­i­cal move­ment. She answers ques­tions posed by reporter Diana Wany­onyi about the shock­ing dis­cov­ery of hun­dreds of cult mem­bers found starved to death in her coun­try, and about her views on how to curb the pow­er of cults. She advis­es that if men were bet­ter hus­bands and fathers, women would not fall for cults in des­per­a­tion; also, that bib­li­cal rea­son­ing could be used to refute cult ideas, and that gov­ern­ment and com­mu­ni­ty need to play a watch­ful role. (Note: Her broad­est def­i­n­i­tion of cults encom­pass­es most of the world’s reli­gions, but she con­cedes oth­ers may choose to mod­i­fy the list.)
