Prophet Owour followers in trouble after latest move
This may not go unpunished.
County Director of Environment, Kiogora Muriithi says that the church must be punished as every Sunday, over 2,000 worshippers destroy trees during their processions.
He said, “The church has been in conflict with the law as they embark on their celebrations and preaching. This cannot go unpunished.”
The church followers have been accused by the County Governments environment department for destroying trees by cutting branches and twigs to celebrate the alleged resurrection of one of the church members, Rosa Rotirakori.
Rosa is said to have fallen ill and died in her village, Cheparten- South Pokot. David’s followers believe that she was brought back to life days later leading to their mass processions and waving tree branches along the streets of Nakuru.
However, the church has denied the claims and promised to conform to environmental laws.
"We often ask worshippers to bring twigs from their homes and go back with them after the procession," said Archbishop John Litunda.
