When Prophet Owour Baptized Raila Odinga,Later forgave His Sins


On May 5, 2009, it was just a year like any other, the news broke that the former prime minister Raila Odinga ha been baptized by prophet Owour and later his sin forgiven.

Owour said that Raila and other politicians needed repentance and forgiveness after the post-election violence that rocked the county following the disputed 2007 general election.

Raila agreed to be saved and was baptized by the prophet Owuor at the Ministry of Repentance and Holiness church in Nairobi.

Prophet Owour baptized Raila saying that his political doors had been opened. The baptism was captured and aired on local and international media.

Pastor Owuor first came to the limelight with his October 2005 predictions of an earthquake that would bring down Nairobi’s tallest buildings. It did not come to pass.

Pastor Owuor now has the keys to the corridors of power where his prescriptions to avert doomsday might find sympathetic ears.

Mr Odinga said the decision was made in the context of the ills now facing Kenya, key among them the incessant political infighting.
