"I've been going through some difficulties in life and then I decided to resign as the secretary so I'm so happy to be here," he said.

AIK President Harrison Mumia thanked Mahiga for his service and wished him well in his future endeavors. 

"Seth's reason for resigning is that he has found Jesus Christ and is no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya. We wish Seth all the best in his new found relationship with Jesus Christ," Mumia wrote in a statement.

Among AIK's objectives are the promotion and practice of "open, rational, and scientific examination of the universe and our place in it", and "to advocate that ethics and morality be meaningfully based on rational and humanistic ideals and values".

The society believes that "human beings are capable of being ethical and moral without religion or God."

The news of Mahiga stepping down from his role with AIK garnered praise on social media.

Julie J Bird wrote, "It is the power of God. Stronger than anything else in the whole universe."

Another user tweeted, "Every knee, shall bow and every tongue shall confess, that Jesus, Christ is lord. Amen!"

And Laura RW congratulated Mahiga on his decision, adding "All glory to God in the highest."
