‘Jesus’ puts in a Kenya show, and it wasn’t a class act at all

What you need to know:

  • It’s abhorrible but one can understand a crooked pastor getting people to drink Dettol and Jik as blessed liquid; after all, they have some antiseptic and cleansing qualities.

  • Even resurrecting the dead, or asking female flock to attend Sunday prayers sans underwear so that the Holy Spirit can enter them without the interference of earthly garments.

  • However, Jesus just popping up on a Nairobi street like that, one would have expected even the most credulous not to fall for it. But they did.

We have five months to go to the end of 2019 but I think we should award the “Con Act of the Year” to the Kenyan pastor who paraded a fake Jesus Christ and, together, they shook down gullible worshippers for millions of shillings.
