Judge has reportedly released self Acclaimed Kenya Jesus of Tongaren after lawyer demanded court to produce the real Jesus if they believe his client was not the one.
This was after the prosecution stated that findings by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) did not offer any grounds to implicate the self-proclaimed messiah, whose real name is Eliud Wekesa.
The New Jerusalem Church leader appeared before the Bungoma Law Courts, where 2022 presidential candidate, Prof. George Wajackoyah, represented him.
In the hearing, an Office of Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) officer informed the Court that the State had decided to close Yesu wa Tongaren’s file.
Yesu wa Tongaren briefly expressed his dissatisfaction with the arrest and arraignment, noting that he fully complied with the investigators.
He was accused of running a religious cult in Tongaren, purporting to be Jesus Christ, teaching radical ideologies to his followers, some of whom are minors, as well as practising and promoting money laundering.
