Residents protest against ‘prophet’ who has been preying on his female followers

09 June 2016, 12:05

Kiambu - Residents of Kiambu County took to the streets Tuesday to protest against the conduct of a self-proclaimed prophet who has been demanding sexual favours from his female followers.

Zachariah Baricho alias Nabii Wanyonyi has allegedly been claiming that he had been directed by the spirit to sleep with the women at least 7 times.

Those who fail to give in to his demands are subsequently branded as witches.

According to Citizen Digital, the father of 12 has also been soliciting money, foodstuffs and livestock from area residents, leading to family breakups.

Cases of false prophets conning unsuspecting members of the public have been on the rise in the country.

In April, two other fake preachers were arraigned in court for obtaining KES 5.6 million from worshipers by false pretenses.

According to reports, the two female victims sent KES 4 million via M-Pesa and another KES 1.6 million in cash to the preachers who had promised to help drive demons away.
