Finger of God Preacher Joseph Hellon

Controversial 'Finger of God' preacher Joseph Hellon has shed light on his unique mentorship program and other business ventures.

In a conversation on Iko Nini Podcast, Hellon unveiled details about his involvement in mentoring journalists and addressed his connection with former TV star Esther Arunga.

Hellon's name became synonymous with controversy due to his association with the former senior news anchor at KTN.

Arunga's downfall left Hellon in a precarious position, facing allegations of involvement in cult-like activities that allegedly contributed to Arunga's decline.

Nonetheless, Hellon staunchly defended his actions, explaining that his mentorship efforts extend far beyond a single individual.

"Why only Esther? I can openly tell you that I have mentored several individuals, but this specific one will shock you – the royal voice, Johnson Mwakazi, is my mentee," Hellon disclosed.

In response to questions about accountability for Arunga's decline while in his church, Hellon said one person's fall should not be attributed to the entire church.

"If one person got messed up in a church, you can't brand the entire church as horrible," he asserted.

Beyond his mentorship endeavours, Hellon discussed the evolution of his church in the face of challenges, including the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

He revealed that he transitioned from physical church services to conducting his services online, effectively expanding his reach to a wider audience.

Curious about the financial aspects of Hellon's ventures, the conversation delved into his income sources.
