An Atheist Boss in Kenya Mocks God After Losing His Job and Securing Another
Harrison Mumia is the most well known controversial boss of the Atheist community in Kenya. It started in January 15th when there was a deadly terrorist attack at the Dussit hotel. The attack lasted for many hours, and most Kenyans had gathered to pray for their loved ones.
Mumia shocked the entire country when he mocked those who were praying by asking a question. He wrote on the Twitter post asking people why they were asking God to protect the victims. He went further to ask them where God was during the attack.
Kenyans reacted by telling him to keep his sentiments away during that difficult time. As if that was not enough, he later went ahead with his negative comments on social media which coasted his job.
Mumia engaged in political activities by posting on social media about his employer. Mumia was working with the Central Bank of Kenya which is government property.
Mumia’s Tweets indicated that he was politically biased. He ridiculed the Nandi Hills Member of Parliament who had been arrested. He went ahead saying that he thought Honorable Alfred Keter was in the government.
He wondered why he was being detained by the government yet he was in government. He, therefore, blamed those who had voted for the government. He ridiculed the government by saying that it was a myth being in the government.
Losing the CBK job
Immediately after his Tweets, the Central Bank of Kenya dismissed him on February 28th, 2019. He was dismissed because of engaging in political issues that might interfere with the neutrality of the government which was also his employer.
Mumia later secured another job as a marketing manager though the firm has not yet been disclosed. On Thursday, March 7th, he posted on Facebook that God doesn’t exist.
“It’s a busy day on my first working day as a marketing manager. Just wanted to remind you’ all that God doesn’t exist,” He wrote. This post incited different reactions from people who seemed disgusted with his stand about religion.
