Babu Owino has joined two other members of parliament in defending self-proclaimed prophet David Owuor and his Ministry of Repentance and Holiness Church.
The Embakasi East MP, together with Igembe South MP John Paul Mwirigi and Nominated MP Gideon Keter, faulted the media for what they termed as unwarranted attacks on Church leaders.
This follows the recent critical media coverage on the activities of ‘Prophet Owuor’ was is accused by a family of brainwashing one of their kin and swindling billions from her estate in Nairobi.
Addressing a media briefing in parliament building on Thursday, Babu Owino revealed that he is a follower of Prophet Owuor.
“We will pray and forgive those fighting the church. Mimi ni mtoto wa misa and I encourage Prophet Owuor to continue serving the flock,” said Babu.
His sentiments were echoed by Mr Keter who castigated the Citizen TV’s News Gang show last week Thursday for allegedly attacking the church.
“Some people want to ground the church, those who are saying pastors should have a degree are wrong. Some opinions should be kept to oneself,” said Keter.
Meanwhile, the Kenya Media Sector Working Group has warned religious leaders against threatening and harassing journalists who pursue incriminating stories about them.
