Kenya: atheists launch medical aid to attract new members

Atheists In Kenya Society (AIK) announced that it is offering medical and funeral coverage in an effort to register new members.

AIK suffered a blow recently when its national secretary resigned after becoming a Christian, BBC News reports.

The society is now asking anyone who is “an atheist, agnostic, free thinker, humanist or sceptic” to register for membership on its website and pay a fee to qualify for the medical and funeral cover.

More than 97% of Kenyans identify with a religion, according to Pew Research.

The group is commonly featured in local news for its views on different issues that touch on religion.
