Controversial pastor Kanyari is back in circulation as Bishop Mwangi



Self-proclaimed and controversial prophet Victor Kanyari is back in circulation under a different brand name.

Kanyari, the lead preacher of Salvation Healing Ministry, now goes by the name Bishop Mwangi, which he says is his other name.

Kanyari was in the limelight after being exposed three years ago for performing fake miracles using potassium permanganate, which turns purple when dissolved in water.

He used this chemical reaction ruse to convince followers that his prayers washed away mysterious diseases by asking them to step into water and witness the disease being ‘washed away’ and change the colour of water in the process.

The exposure got Kenyans wagging but soon died out as no one complained to the police. Kanyari was then asking those who wished to be prayed for to panda mbeguwith 

Sh310 through mobile phone money transfer. That saga resulted in his gospel singer wife Betty Bayo divorcing him.

But the man has since repackaged himself as Bishop Mwangi, with a somehow different voice and ‘reloaded’ miracles, for which he asks for a discounted Sh250 as “seed offering.”

Kanyari has been broadcasting half-hour audio clips that are aired on Radio Jambobetween 4.45am and 5.10am.

The Nairobian obtained the recordings after several complaints from listeners about Bishop Mwangi.

One complainant was miffed by his promise to a sickly woman that she would be cured after parting with the ‘seed offering’ money.

It is back to the old trick of prayers for sale.  Another complaint to the radio station and seen by The Nairobian reads in part: “This is Emmanuel and am requesting hiyo namba ya Pastor Mwangi coz he has requested for some amount of money akisema anarudisha baada ya maombi na ajanirudishia nikimpigia anaweka number busy(07415292**) (sic).”

In the 30-minutes recording, ‘Bishop Mwangi’ begins with a short prayer, then goes straight to claim that he is anointed prophet who has seen many people out there suffering, including the educated but jobless and whom he has been sent to liberate.

He claims to be praying from the top of a hill and that God has commanded him to ask listeners for Sh250 as “seed offering” for miracle prayers, and that those who will heed the call  will be blessed ?nancially, get jobs, healed and even acquire plots to build in Nairobi, among other windfalls.

In between speaking in ‘tongues,’ ‘Bishop Mwangi’ interrupts the programme to share his three different mobile phone numbers through which listeners can send the Sh250 and wait for his call for prayers.

“God has sent me like Moses in the Bible who was given a stick. In my case, he has given me the power to pray for people through the phone. You don’ have to see, neither must we meet for you to receive your miracle. The Sh250 offering you will send is your password to riches and peaceful life”, he tells the listeners.

After some time, he introduces a woman only identi?ed as ‘Mama Mitchell’ for a short testimony about how she sent the seed and got healed from diabetes and high blood pressure.

“I had suffered for a very long time. But when I heard the prophet and heeded his call through the seed money, I was healed immediately,” she claimed.

Kanyari then continues to claim that a woman who was suffering from arthritis in Busia was healed after kupanda mbegu, as was another HIV positive woman who is now free of the virus.

 Among the problems and ailments, he claims he can take care of on-air through prayers include broken marriages, asthma, failing businesses, unemployment, desire for big cars and plots and liberating those who have been bewitched.

“There is a woman who was selling plastic materials and her business was not doing well. When she heard my voice as commanded by God, things suddenly changed for the better and she now owns a supermarket,” he claimed, adding that: “I was in Malaysia, Switzerland and Canada praying for people and now that I’m back home in Kenya, it’s your turn (to receive a miracle)…not long ago, I was in Congo and Mauritius where the disabled were healed. In Tanzania, I prayed for a woman who had never conceived for 17 years and she got child!”

Grace Ekirapa: I’ve been unable to access DJ Mo since cheating scandal



Grace Ekirapa, who hosts NTV’s gospel show Crossover 101, has revealed that she had not been in touch with her co-host DJ Mo since rumors he was cheating on his wife Size 8 rocked the internet a fortnight ago.

Ever since reports emerged that DJ Mo, real name Sammy Muraya, was cheating on his wife of seven years Size 8 causing a social media frenzy, the DJ was barred from co-hosting the show with Ekirapa and is thought to be busy trying to glue his marriage together.

Weighing in on the scandal rocking the marriage of her co-host, Ekirapa revealed that she had been trying unsuccessfully to reach out to DJ Mo.

“I haven’t spoken to him and to be honest. It’s been hard for me to get to him. My phone calls haven’t been going through, I know it’s been difficult for him and I think when he is ready he will talk to me. Meanwhile the show has been going on without him but that’s the management’s decision.” Ekirapa revealed during an Interview with Radio Jambo.

She, however, felt DJ Mo should be given a second chance.

“What I will have to say is, when you get saved you won’t stop sinning, you can’t be perfect but there will be consequences. We make mistakes. DJ Mo is an amazing guy and if there’s a chance of working with him again, I would love that.” She added.

“During the launch of Crossover is when the rumor started. We had done a couple of photo shoots on different days and most of the time his hands was on my shoulder or mine on his and so people got talking.” she explained.

‘Our marriage is currently in a tough space’ Says Vivianne, Sam West responds



Motivational speaker-cum music manager Sam West has responded after his wife Vivianne hinted that they are going through marital problems.

According to a social media post by Vivianne, people always assume they are a perfect couple but they are not.

Speaking exclusively to Mpasho, Sam West said he hopes things will work out for them.

‘We just have a few domestic challenges but we are working on them. We juts need prayers.’

Asked if this is just clout chasing considering his wife just released a new jam, he responded

‘No it’s not kiki, it’s just a coincidence.’

Sam Was responding to the post below by his wife Vivianne

‘Today I want to be very candid.. nataka niongee wazi.. The world first met  when he decided to propose on the biggest TV show in the country.

I was shocked and this was unexpected for me.

I couldn’t say yes or no so I sat there in front of 40mill Kenyans hoping the world would swallow me but it didn’t, so I smiled.

First forward I have worked with Sam West and been his woman for 4 years.

So to get to the point this post is for you who understands that what society has labeled as marriage is one of the hardest things to exist in.

We are two humans who have learnt the hard way. We are friends and we will always care about one another. Our union has however taken a kick to the stomach.’

Vivianne added

‘ IG in-laws can attest to the fact that I haven’t posted Sam on my feed for the past one month or so.

We felt it would be important to share the truth that marriage can get difficult..

Social media couples have created illusions of perfect marriages which we feel are quite misleading.

To be honest we have ignored each other’s needs in our union . Expectations and control took over our relationship. We are in a tough space and to be honest we are hoping we will overcome the current challenge.

Hii sio Kiki. For those who love even one of us remember us in your prayers. May God’s will be done.

In the meantime ukipata unayemdhamini never take them for granted., #najua
