Catholics are fighting my church, Deya says

Embattled London-based preacher Gilbert Deya yesterday accused archbishop Ndingi Mwana a’Nzeki of wanting to finish his ministry.

Deya claims the Catholic archbishop and other bishops have been hunting down his ministry in Kenya for the last fifteen years.

Deya claims that during his last crusade at Banana Hill in Nairobi, he pulled the biggest crowd ever witnessed and was almost killed for that. “The Catholic bishops were jealous they almost killed me. They warned me not to organise a crusade in the same ground,” he said.

He was reacting to statements by Ndingi that he would help the government extradite him to Kenya to face child trafficking charges.

In a faxed statement, Deya asks Ndingi to explain why he pre-judged him as a child trafficker. He also insisted that he was not afraid to return to Kenya.

“How can an archbishop who many Catholic Kenyans follow as a spiritual leader believe the press and judge me as a child trafficker. He is supporting evils regime’s efforts to extradite me?” he posed.

He insists that miracle babies are real and he has performed the same for several others women in the UK.

He said Ndingi brought shame to Christianity and leading people astray by failing to believe in miracles, signs and wonders of Jesus Christ.

An enemy of the cross…

The Bible say that some people live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Self-proclaimed archbishop Gilbert Deya is such a man.

And in Meru, a couple that is claiming parentage of one of the miracle babies yesterday asked the government to resolve the mystery so that they may be reunited with their son.

The four-year-old boy they are claiming, Andy Kaimenyi who has, however, been renamed Simon Peter Deya disappeared from their Kithoka home near Meru town one afternoon of June last year.

Speaking at Meru police station yesterday where they had sought to know the progress of the miracle babies saga, the couple Gerald Muthomi, 29 and Catherine Kajuju, 25, lamented that they were undergoing mental torture and anguish.

“Since our son has already recognised us during the parade at the CID headquarters in Nairobi it would be appropriate if the boy was given back to us. We are sure that he is undergoing similar trauma wherever he is,” they lamented.

They had sought to know from the Meru officer commanding station Ms Norah Wanzau the progress made in the matter.
