It is time to rein in these religious quacks – Nairobi News

Published

Last Saturday, villagers in Cheparten in South Pokot gathered to mourn the death of Mama Rosa, the only woman in Kenya who is purported to have “died twice”.

Mama Rosa was an ardent follower of the Ministry of Holiness and Repentance, a church owned and operated by ‘Prophet’ Dr Bishop David Owour.

The bizarre story goes that Mama Rosa fell sick in June 2017 and was diagnosed with pneumonia and rheumatoid arthritis. She apparently died but when her husband called Prophet Owuor, lo and behold, Mama Rosa conquered death, in typical Lazarus fashion.

Now a couple of weeks back, Mama Rosa died — this time for real — and during her burial last Saturday, her eulogy read like something out of biblical times. “The late Mama Rosa was initially diagnosed with arthritis and died in June 2017 before she was resurrected by the mightiest prophet who uttered three words, ‘It is well’.”

BEARDED NUTCASE

It is time to stop this bearded nutcase Prophet Owour, aka ‘mightiest prophet’.

There has never, ever, been a greater religious conman in this country than Prophet Owuor, and I say this authoritatively in the full knowledge that we still have the likes of the Kiunas with us. But, before we stop the Kiunas and the Gakuyos, the government needs to start a massive and far-reaching crackdown on these pseudo-prophets.

We have let this fraud Prophet Owuor get away with too much, but this time, especially in light of this Mama Rosa drama, Prophet Owuor has gone too far. I am OK with his deluded legion of fans scouring the roads with soap for his coming, but claiming to raise the dead is over the top, and also funny in a sick way.

Prophet Owuor is a toxic, predatory, shameless avuncular crook hiding under a religious cloak to prey on the poor, sick and desperate people in our society. For a man who calls himself “prophet” he is leading a far too flashy and flamboyant life; the real prophets Elijah and Elisha must be seething with rage in their heavenly lairs.

This self-absorbed charlatan — who seems to enjoy protection from the government — does not belong in the pulpit, or anywhere near a church. He belongs in jail for lying to innocent souls, giving them false hope and monetising their desperation.

The “Grand Mega Healing Conference” he hosted in January was a most grotesque event camouflaged as a healing rally, with poor people dragging their sick relatives and friends just to touch the hem of his oversize suit.

I know the freedom to worship has been enshrined in the Constitution, but that does not give us leeway to allow these delinquents to lie to our people.

DUPLICITOUS FRAUDS

We cannot have narcissistic, duplicitous frauds like “Bishop” David Ngari of Gakuyo Real Estate setting up churches and swindling their members into joining fake housing saccos just to enrich himself.

It is hardly a good idea to ask members of a cult to abandon their church or even stop contributing towards the purchase of a jet for Crooked Daddy Pastor perched on Forest Road.

Many people don’t realise when they are joining a cult, and most will be fleeced to bankruptcy before it dawns on them that Mummy Pastor’s #40DaysofGlory are actually #40DaysofConning. In such cultic churches, it would seem, salvation occurs by the removal of your mind and not its renewal.

The government needs to put its foot down and deregister every single church in this country owned by an individual — or a group of individuals — since crime in churches happens especially where two or three are gathered.

We cannot have every good-looking couple in town set up shop masquerading as a church and appoint a bunch of hypocritical wackos to act as “elders” to fool millions of faithful.

While at it, we need to make these pastors accountable for the monies received in churches. The first sign of a cult is how they handle their money. If your mummy and daddy pastor treat your tithes and offerings with secrecy, then you need to ask yourself a few questions.

The government also needs to thoroughly vet the credentials of these characters and ensure they have been trained at reputable theological colleges.

Let’s get these sick men out of our churches. I know a great place to start: Prophet David Owuor, mightiest conman.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
