The Prophet asserts that he has authored a bible consisting of 69 books, which he utilizes to educate his followers. He emphasizes that all of his services are rooted in biblical teachings and firmly believes that he is the sole individual capable of revolutionizing the gospel on a global scale.

During the interview conducted at his residence in Nzoia, the Prophet disclosed that he was born in 1940 in the Saboti constituency of Trans-Nzoia County.

Concerning fees for his services, the Prophet asserted that he provides them free of charge, believing that his gift was given to him by God without cost.

The Prophet proudly owns three homes located in Bungoma (Nandolia, Matulo, and Webuye), as well as residences in Kitale and Lugari within Kakamega County. In his home, he has established a church with a dedicated ward to accommodate those who are critically ill.

Due to the potential adverse effects of certain medications, the Prophet has designated rooms at his home where individuals under treatment can rest while he prays for their recovery. Following the prayer, he takes them to River Chwele for baptism, symbolizing the cleansing of their sins.

The Prophet’s ample land and resources are sufficient to provide for the needs of his extensive family.
