Wonders shall never cease, especially in this beloved country of ours.
If you thought you had seen it all with the likes of Prophet Kanyari, Prophet Owuor, Prophetess Lucy Nduta, and more, allow us to introduce you to the prophet of all Kenyan prophets; Prophet Nabii Yohana (V) from Nandolia village, Kanduyi Constituency in Bungoma County.
With 39 wives, Prophet Nabii Yohana is fast closing in on the late Asentus Ogwella Akuku Danger’s record of 45 wives. Yohanna’s wives have born him 103 children and 232 grandchildren.
Though three of his wives are deceased, the Prophet is not yet done.
“God chooses these wives for me. I have never dated any of them but God brings them to me,” he said.
“And according to God’s word, I’m supposed to marry up to 48 wives so that I don’t commit adultery,” says the man who has never shaved since birth.
Yohana has five homes: Six of his wives live in Soi, Lugari Sub County, five in Kimilili, five in Chereng’any, 16 in Kakamega town and four are in Kitale town.
Originally born Ronald Nakalila Wanyama, Nabii claims that he is the reincarnated John the Baptist.
“I am John the Baptist who was beheaded. I lived as a white man in the US and now Africa where I’ll live for 280 years,” he said, adding that, “According to the prophecy God gave me, I will die but resurrect and live for another 2,700 years.”
As if that wasn’t outrageous enough, Nabii claims he is set to launch his own Bible after revising the current one because it is outdated.
“My bible will be unveiled on April 23 at my Muungano Church of Holy Spirit for All Nations at Nandolia village in Bungoma,” he said.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will be the chief guests during the launch because we want them to give us money for printing many books to be distributed countrywide,” he said.
His Bible allegedly took him 68 years to author and it comprises of 93 books: 48 books for Old Testament.
The books include Mfarisayo Wilson, Agnes, Mfarisayo Geoffrey, Benson (II), Peter Petro and Mfarisayo Peter among others. The bible only has verses, unlike the Holy Bible which is divided into chapters.
In an interview with The Nairobian, Nabii said he is on a mission to “Save mankind from corruption, homosexuality and bad governance. I am the way, the truth and the last prophet sent by God.”
The self-styled prophet, who commands a huge following in Bungoma, Uasin Gishu, Nandi and Kisumu Counties, says churches in Kenya have until April this year to migrate.
On top of all that, he wants to petition the government to replace the shilling with his currency called mzawadi. He also wants President Uhuru to move Central Bank headquarters to the Kenya-Uganda border at Lwakhakha where the currency will be launched.
Why you ask? Because, “The current currency is the source of all ills like corruption, robbery with violence, political assassinations and the spread of HIV /AIDS and it must be abolished for this country to prosper. The image of President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta on the currency implies that it his private property.”
To top it all off, Nabii can resurrect the dead. How you ask?
“I bring back the dead by jumping over them three times,” he said. To heal the sick, “I step on them and they receive their healing.”
SMH!! Why always Bungoma County??
