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.
