Embattled Archbishop Gilbert Deya yesterday cursed the families of President Kibaki and Attorney-General Amos Wako.
In a rumbling and strongly-worded letter, but written in remarkably poor English, Deya warned the President and A-G of rough times ahead.
He said their “children and grandchildren will die in the streets, the way you have left these holy children of Almighty God to suffer and be humiliated throughout the streets of Kenya.”

Deya told the President that his “two wives shall never live to see their grandchildren from this generation to the next”. And he added that he was speaking “as the servant of the Most High God in the presence of the citizens of the United Kingdom.”
Kenyans, too, did not escape Deya’s wrath. “Kenyans, I proclaim damnation over you. You are cursed under your confused leadership. The wrath of God shall be upon you. You shall lack food, and your children shall suffer and die just as God punished the generation of Ahab and his wicked wife Jezebel”
Deya also reminded Wako that he had prayed for his wife and now that he (Deya) has been accused of trafficking babies, he hoped the A-G would defend him.
He told Wako that if he does not know him well, then he should consult Environment minister Kalonzo Musyoka who has attended his church services.
Deya at the same time threatened to sue President Kibaki and Wako for damages he has incurred.
“I am going to file a case against you and your government in the International Courts of Justice for all the damage you have caused me, and not forgetting my family and my ministries.
” I guarantee you; you will have to pay a great deal of compensation as a result. You have been warned.”
The three-page letter made available to the East African Standard, states: “Mr President, I am an Archbishop and I would like to plead with the Attorney General, Mr Amos Wako, who cannot deny sitting with me several times in his office (at Sheria House) to attend to his personal problems.
“Mr Wako have you forgotten when I prayed for your wife. If you deny this, I will call you Satan from hell! I want you to remember the time I met His Excellency President Moi at State House and he referred me to you. In my meeting with you, I requested you to register a church organisation for the Baluhya.
“In your authority you honoured my wishes, and registered the church. Mr Wako, can you defend me, now that I have been accused of ‘trafficking babies’? “
“Attorney General, you depended on my prayers and now I am classified as a criminal by your wicked government.
“May God bless you if you remove my wife and children from where Satan has kept them. My wife is an exceedingly holy woman and she does not deserve . . . what is happening to her,” Deya wrote.
He added that if Wako does not act on his (Deya’s) behalf, the Almighty God would not allow him to live a happy life.
“If you don’t know me by now Mr Attorney General, I suggest you consult Mr Kalonzo Musyoka who has been the Foreign Affairs Minister for many years. He is also a born again Christian and has attended our services in Kenya and on many occasions in particular at Nyayo Stadium,” Deya said.
Regarding reports of families who have laid claim to some of the children said to be his ‘miracle babies’, Deya said this was part of a conspiracy against him. The pastor wondered why those claiming the children had not reported to the police before that their babies had gone missing.
