PastorWahomeControversial Helicopter of Christ Ministries’ Bishop Thomas Wahome has come out to distance himself from allegations of sending nude photos and explicit text messages to his congregates on Whatsapp.

The Bishop told The Nairobian that he had received calls from some of his church members asking him to stop sending the nude pictures and demanding tithe.

According to the man of the cloth, the person behind the whole scheme is out to tarnish his name. He revealed that about a month ago, he formed the Whatsapp group dubbed ‘Helicopter of Christ Ministries’ to make it easier to minister to his flock. He later exited the group as he was not conversant with it.

“I was the group’s administrator and I had more than 900 members. I wanted to use the platform to preach the gospel,” he said.

He claimed one of the members took over as the group’s administrator and has been sending explicit messages, nude pictures, as well as soliciting  for money from members.

“When I started receiving complaints from people and some members that they were receiving obscene materials from the group,  I was so shocked. I decided to carry out an investigation to get to the bottom of the matter. The culprit is attempting to tarnish my name and ministry,” he said.

 “Some of the messages reportedly sent via the group demanded that the recipients pay as much as Sh10,000  to check if their names are in the Book of Life.  Apart from the suggestive messages, some members said the administrator demanded cash for miracles and prayers.” He added.
