Eliud Wekesa alias ‘Yesu wa Tongaren’ has been ordered to return to Bungoma police station for the second day running as detectives seek to unearth any wrongdoings associated with his ministry.

Francis Kooli, Bungoma police boss, said the probe on Wekesa would continue after he spent time with detectives on Wednesday who probed his faith, doctrine, and change of name. Wekesa’s summon comes barely a month after the Shakahola incident in Kilifi County where many souls have been lost due to cultism.

Addressing the press at DCI headquarters in Bungoma town on Wednesday, Wekesa distanced himself from allegations that he was a fake spiritual leader.

“Since I started this church, I have never had a problem with anybody but ever since the Shakahola incident happened people started questioning about my New Jerusalem church,” he said.

Wekesa started his ministry 12 years ago. He expressed confidence that he would be vindicated at last for he had broken no law.

“If this goes the other way and I am arraigned, I don’t plan to have any physical lawyer to defend me, my lawyers will be the sun and the moon,” he said.
