Muslim cleric wants Prophet Owuor arrested

A Muslim cleric Friday condemned the death of five people waiting for a healing miracle at Prophet David Owuor’s crusade in Nakuru county on Thursday.

Kenya National Muslims Advisory Council chairman Sheikh Juma Ngao said there is “nothing like miracle healing under the sun” to be performed by any man or woman of either faith.

Ngao urged the government to investigate and arrest all religious leaders claiming to be prophets.

“The only genuine miracles through God’s help and guidance were last performed by two prophets, Jesus Christ and prophet Muhammad. Any other person claiming to have these powers is just conning the public and it is sin,” Ngao said at a press conference in Mombasa town.

The five people had been taken from various hospitals to receive healing at the crusade on Kaptembwa Grounds.

Ngao said there are no prophets after Jesus and Mohamed.


Faithful scrub street ahead of Owuor crusade in Nakuru

Nakuru residents Tuesday were treated to a spectacle as followers of Prophet David Owuor made preparations for his crusade in Kaptembwa Grounds.

Hundreds of followers swept and washed with soap some roads in the Nakuru Central Business District, where Owour was expected to pass on his way to the rally venue.

The New Year rally began Tuesday and runs up to January 1.

Traffic was interrupted as the followers cleaned the streets while rehearsing the songs they would sing for the prophet.

“We are doing it for the man of God. We are ready to receive him and hear the word of God. Thousands are expected to join the rally from Kenya and neighbouring countries because we believe in God, who uses him to speak to the world,” said one of the followers.

The followers have been trickling into town for three days awaiting Owour’s arrival.

Nakuru police chief Bernard Kioko said more than 400 officers have been deployed to the crusade venue.


Bishop who prophesied Jubilee’s win claims he prayed for Uhuru on phone

ICC cases against President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will flop, a Roysambu-based televangelist has said.

Bishop Edward Mwai of Jesus Winner Ministry said the two leaders are humble before God and have always sought His guidance.

“I am confident that God is in control. All will be well very soon,” Mwai said.

The bishop was speaking during a crusade he held at Githurai 44 on Sunday. A source at State House told the Star that Uhuru consults widely with men of God including Mwai.

Mwai said that Uhuru contacted him for consultations and prayer before travelling to his ICC status conference last week, where he is facing charges of crimes against humanity following the 2007-2008 post election violence.

“This is a confirmation that the leader of this country has confidence in God,” Mwai said.

Ruto has reportedly attended several thanksgiving services at Mwai’s church in Roysambu.

It is also said that Uhuru and Ruto were anointed by Mwai who prophesied that they would become president and deputy president respectively.

A source at the church said the leadership prophecy made both Uhuru and Ruto have confidence in the church.

On January 1, Mwai prophesied that the cases against Uhuru and Ruto would flop. He also predicted that more fuel deposits will be discovered in the country and that nations that had severed ties with Kenya because of the ICC cases will change their minds.
