Thika Road Mall (TRM) Rejected the Atheists In Kenya Ad!


3Atheist KenyaAtheists In Kenya (AIK) paid for an advert to be put at a Poster on the outdoor Advertisement Board at Thika Road Mall (TRM) last week. The cashier accepted our payment of KShs. 650, and gave us a receipt. The message on the ad was: “Don’t Believe in God? You are not Alone. Join us on WhatsApp +254 717 110066”. On Saturday, I received a call from TRM that they had rejected putting up the ad and asked us to collect our money. The reason they gave is that they do not do such ads at TRM.

Well, I totally understand that it’s their premises, it’s business. They don’t want to be perceived as promoting ‘Devil Worship, Illuminati and Satanists’. But then again, we are atheists. We are Atheists In Kenya. One of our objectives is to promote the acceptance of atheists in Kenya. Clearly we are far from achieving this objective. And my hope is that one day, the Kenyan society shall accept us without prejudice, just as they accept the preachers who propagate worship in an invisible non-existent deity.

President, AIK

    That was quite soft message. They ought to have accepted it. Big up for the daring move

    What a BIG shame! In this day and age, they should accept diverse views from diverse sources but since it is business and choice, let them have their say, it lessens nothing of our view as atheist;it shouldn’t be a distraction but it stresses more that the world is screwed by hypocrites.

    Yes freedom for for AIK to air their views as well as freedom for TRM to choose what to display on their premises.
