Maina Kageni: My mum gave US preacher Benny Hinn Sh500k but denied me Sh40k



Popular radio host Maina Kageni, has revealed how his mother once gave a tithe of Sh500,000 to US preacher Benny Hinn, even as she denied him a smaller amount of money.

“My mum gave half a million to US preacher Bennie Hinn as tithe. Yet I asked her to give me Sh40,000 and she told me she did not have cash,” said Maina.

Hinn gained popularity among Kenyans in 2000 after traveling to the country and making promises of miraculous treatments for diseases including HIV/AIDS and blindness.

Four Kenyans, including two young children, are claimed to have perished at a crusade at the time as they awaited miracle treatments from the American preacher who was in town.

Ten more were hurt after falling from trees they had climbed to get a view of the preacher, while the four had been discharged from a hospital to be healed during Hinn’s “Miracle Crusade.” Hinn had predicted that Jesus will arrive on the stage at this gathering.

As of today, the death toll in Shakahola starvation cult has risen to 89, with Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki saying it is a turning point for Kenya on how to handle security issues caused by religious insurgents.
