Controversial and self-proclaimed prophet Victor Kanyari of the Salvation Healing Ministry is back in media with a different brand name.
Three years ago, Kanyari was in circulation after an expose that revealed him performing fake miracles.
He used potassium permanganate, which turns purple when dissolved in water, to convince faithfuls that his prayers washed away mysterious diseases. He asked them to step into water and witness the disease being ‘washed away’ and change the colour of water in the process.
He asked those who wanted to be prayed for to sow a seed of Sh310 through mobile phone money transfer.
Be that as it may, Kanyari has rebranded himself as Bishop Mwangi, with a somehow different voice and ‘reloaded’ miracles, for which he asks for a discounted Sh250 as “seed offering.”
Kanyari has been broadcasting a 30-minute audio clips that are aired on Radio Jambo between 4.45am and 5.10am.
Several listeners have complained about Bishop Mwangi.
“This is Emmanuel and am requesting hiyo namba ya Pastor Mwangi coz he has requested for some amount of money akisema anarudisha baada ya maombi na ajanirudishia nikimpigia anaweka number busy(07415292**) (sic),” listeners complaint reads in part
Bishop Mwangi, formerly Prophet Victor Kanyari, claims to be praying from the top of a hill and that God has commanded him to ask listeners for Sh250 as “seed offering” for miracle prayers.
