Prophet Dr David Owuor, leader of the Ministry of Repentance and Holiness church, has stirred controversy and provoked widespread outrage after asserting that he is responsible for bringing the coronavirus to the people.

In an undated video circulating on social media, Prophet Owuor is seen delivering a sermon to a large gathering at an undisclosed location.

The video has caused a stir online, with many expressing shock and disbelief at the bold claims made by the controversial pastor.


In the TikTok video posted by user Clement124, Prophet Owuor can be heard issuing a stern warning to Kenyans not to test him. He asserts that he has the power to destroy Kenya but has chosen to show them grace instead.

"I am the one who brought the Coronavirus. Look at how many people died at my word. Kenya, don't try me. If I destroy you, I will destroy you completely. But for now, I am giving you grace," Owuor declared in the video.

Prophet Owuor's claims have incited widespread condemnation from Kenyans, who have expressed their frustrations in the comments section of the post.


Some have denounced his statements as irresponsible and dangerous, accusing him of spreading fear and misinformation.

Many expressed disbelief and anger at his assertions, calling for action to be taken against him, while others have criticized him for exploiting people's fears for his gain.

"This is outrageous! How can someone claim responsibility for a global pandemic that has caused so much suffering and loss of life?" commented one user.
