When Bishop Margaret Wanjiru tested positive for Covid-19 positive, Owuor’s adherents termed it a punishment for disobeying Owuor.
The self-declared ‘mightiest prophet’ claims to have unleashed the deadly Coronavirus on people that have refused to listen to his preachings.
Just a few days ago, a section of ‘Prophet’ Owuor’s members were seen on Social Media celebrating Bishop Wanjiru’s COVID-19 positive results.
The Jesus is Alive Bishop has however fully recovered and was today released to go home.
Addressing the media, Bishop Wanjiru attributes her recovery to the quick response in seeking medical attention.
“Running to the hospital will save somebody’s life. It doesn’t matter whether you have COVID-19 or not,” said Bishop Wanjiru.
‘Prophet’ Owuor is known for his controversial doctrines, among them, attributing every calamity to ‘disobeying’ him and his strange demands.
He has on several occasions sought the attention of the President, urging him to call for a national repentance meeting as the solution to all the country’s problems.
Owuor claims to have unleashed the Covid-19 pandemic as a punishment for rebelling against him and his message.
Prophet Owuor and Bishop Wanjiru have had a long history of disagreement, dating to as early as 2015.
In an interview on KTN, Bishop Wanjiru accused Prophet Owuor of spending all his time preaching against other preachers, something she termed unethical.
“There is this one man who whenever he stands up to preach, he is only condemning other Pastors. How do you go to a crusade in Kakamega and all you are preaching is about Bishop Margaret Wanjiru?” said the former Starehe MP.
During the said rally in Kakamega and on live TV, Owuor mocked Bishop Wanjiru, accusing her of being a ‘false prophet’ who cannot perform a single miracle.
According to Bishop Wanjiru, ‘Prophet’ Owuor needs to come out and be clear about the source of his funding.
“The man is shouting against sadaka, but he needs to explain to us about the fleet of expensive cars he drives around in. Can he explain the lavish lifestyle he is accustomed to?” said Wanjiru.
