Bishop scoffs at offer

A bishop yesterday scoffed at the Sh100,000 police offer to anyone with information that will help them identify the mother of a three-week-old baby said to have been miraculously conceived by London-based Kenyan preacher Gilbert Deya‘s wife.

Kisumu’s Eliakim Mbata Owino of the Water of Life Church said such an offer would yield nothing if, indeed, the conception of the child was miraculous.

“As Christians we believe in miracles and if, indeed, the child in question was conceived miraculously, then no woman will come forward to claim it,” he said.

DNA tests conducted on Mrs Mary Deya and the infant she claimed to have delivered have established that she is not the biological mother.
