Controversial preacher Kanyari back at it with gambling program


If you thought pastor Victor Kanyari's antics were over, then you better think again because the 'man of God' is still going on with his preaching 'business'.

Pastor Kanyari who went underground for a while after being exposed for duping congregants for using potassium permanganate to produce blood now runs a thriving church at Chokaa area in Njiru where his classic bungaloo residence is also located.

What is more amusing is that after establishing two television stations, Shifu TV and Sifa TV, Kanyari has introduced a programme dubbed "Miracle Money" which runs for over 20 minutes on a daily basis on Shifu TV.

On this programme, Kanyari starts by telling viewers how after going and coming out from prayer and fasting, the Holy Spirit has told him to empower viewers by giving out Sh30,000 for each of the first 30 people who send in a minimum of Sh100 to a number given on the screen.

He assures the audience that each of the first 30 people are eligible for the prize money which he calls the jackpot. He also showcases a number of people who have benefited from his programme including white people.

To increase eligibility and probability of being seen by the "secretaries" Kanyari advises viewers to consider sending more money instead of the minimum Sh100.

"Secretary wangu wanaangalianga mtu mwenye ametuma pesa nyingi kwanza kabla waende kwa wengine kwa hivyo ukitaka kufaulu, ni vizuri utume pesa mingi" Kanyari explains.

He then proceeds to read out some of those who have begun sending in their money and assuring them that the secretaries were working out to send out Sh30,000 to the first 30 participants.

For those who may not get the cash prize, he explains the reason as being lateness in sending in the money.

The controversial preacher is regarded as one of the richest pastors in Kenya and he recently built a state-of-the-art house and church in Chokaa along Kangundo road. He also recently acquired a Toyota V8 vehicle and held a ceremony at his church to welcome it.

One of the congregants wrote a post on his social media showcasing the high-end vehicle and prophesied that the 'man of God' would receive a private jet in the near future.

"I am happy to serve under a Blessed Served of God.

"Baba you are going far, you are truly called for the world, Prophet Kanyari you got the anointing.

"As I said, next ni Private Jet. For now, congratulations are in order, and still waiting for the party.

It is not yet clear whether Kanyari's betting programme is regularised by the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB) or whether the participants actually get the money as alleged.

However, recently, the preacher has received numerous backlashes from netizens for deviating from his main call as a preacher to engage in betting and gambling. Those who fall to his antics have also been blamed for being gullible.

"How can a man of God introduce a betting programme and claim that it is God who directed him to do it," wrote one netizen.
