A former member of Repentance and Holiness Ministry has shared a string of disturbing revelations portraying Prophet Owuor as a liar, hypocrite and man using supernatural powers to hoodwink the public into believing he is a miracle worker.
Kinoti Joseph who likened his experience with Owuor's ministry to coming face to face with a cult said he was blinded with the doctrine of the preacher until he abandoned his undergraduate studies to focus on spreading the gospel in streets and local markets.

Born of poor parents in a remote village in Meru county, Kinoti struggled through his childhood life and education until he made it to Moi University where he was admitted to pursue a degree course in Computer Science.
It is at this point that the innocent Nkubu High School alumnus was introduced to Owuor's church by his roommate only identified as Cheruiyot.

Though he was hesitant to join the ministry at first, the roommate kept on persuading him until he finally gave in and decided to accompany him one day, just for one service.
"Well, I finally gave in to Cheruiyot's nagging. I decided to silence him for good by attending the fellowship. Only once, I promised myself," recalled Kinoti.
He was taken through prayers and before he could realise it, the computer science student had fully been ushered into the ministry and was appointed one of the fellowship leaders.

After serving the church diligently, Kinoti was promoted to lead Owuor's Twitter team whose primary task was to ensure only clean content about the preacher and church was shared.
It is at this point that the young learner discovered the tricks the preacher was using to dupe the public into believing he was a miracle worker.
"I quit my education to fully devote myself to serving in the 'Church'. By this time, I was already proud of the title Pastor. Fast forward, I was later promoted to Overseer, and served as the 'Prophet's Twitter Army Prefect.
It was during this time that I discovered that the whole system was based on fake miracles, fake signs, and a false prophet Owuor. Everything was fake! I felt deceived. Something I had sacrificed everything for. It was now apparent that it was a scam.

He claimed the Mighty Prophet of God often used threats to instill fear in his followers and ensure they follow his doctrine and do not question anything.
As Twitter prefect, Kinoti was tasked to recruit a team that would ensure they protect the image of their master and his ministry.
The team's other role was to create content that would portray Owuor in good light, in line with his miraculous work.
The self-declared Prophet would review their report and issue instructions on what should be done, how and when.

Other than leading the Twitter troops, the ex-member was also tasked to create blogs and lead another army of keyboard warriors to help the church spread fabricated content about Owuor's powers.
"We created blogs to push Owuor's miracles. I ensured they were translated to as many languages as possible. We later had to delete them and do away with the blogs. Reason? Details emerged that the miracles only existed online," he disclosed
Another deceiving strategy employed by the preacher, according to the witness, was editing videos to suit any tragedy of a national or international proportion.
"Owuor will always wait for any calamity and make gains out of it. He was recently busted editing a video to claim he predicted Coronavirus. Riding on the intense media coverage of Coronavirus, he inserts himself into the narrative just to get a piece of the action," he charged.
On healing miracles, the former member said a "crippled" person who spoiled the show would be edited out of the clip, leaving only those who follow the script.

This overwhelming work which he was dedicated to doing at all cost made him start missing classes and eventually abandon studies in third year.
His two other friends studying in Egerton University too quit their studies and dedicated themselves to serve Owuor and his ministry.
Before realising, Kinoti had wasted over ten years in the dark shadow of the Mighty Prophet of God.
He wrote an email to the church citing all the above issues before quitting.
Kinoti, however, lost his admission at Moi University having stayed away from the institution for over eight years without any deferral letter.
He later made arrangements and joined another institution where he completed his studies.
"Be careful with these strange religious movements mushrooming everyday. I found myself right inside a dangerous cult. If you are inside one, seek an exit route soonest"
