Reuben Gitau a resident of Naivasha said they were stunned to find the two had exhumed a casket from the grave, put the body besides it and fervently praying for resurrection.
He said it was disturbing to see the deceased disturbed in the name of resurrecting them and thanked the administration for responding to public alarm and arresting the preacher and the woman believed to be the baby's mother.
"Thanks a lot Karati area Chief in an police in Naivasha sub-county for your quick response towards arresting the cult preachers who had exhumed body of a child who was buried in December. The preachers wanted to raise the child," Gitau posted on Facebook.

The chief said authorities nabbed the two because they had illegally exhumed body of deceased without obtaining court orders.
"We don't have a problem with the faith of those involved but they needed to obtain court order if they believed they had capacity to pray and resurrect the dead," he said.
Police officers arrested the two and carted away with the body of the deceased.
