Jehovah Wanyonyi


Jehovah Wanyonyi

Jehovah Wanyonyi (1924-2015) was a self-proclaimed god who lived in Chemororoch village in Uasin Gishu County, western Kenya. He claimed to be the Almighty God and deemed Jesus Christ to be his son. He considered Mount Elgon which is near his home to be Mount Zion. He died on July 18, 2015 at the age of 91.[1] He also claimed to be able to cure AIDS and had stated that he would punish Kenya if the country did not give him three billion Kenya shillings ($34.6 million). His religion was called "Lost Israelites." Wanyonyi had 70 wives and 95 children.[1] He had several grandchildren. He refused to say if his children are also sons of God. Wanyonyi is said to have approximately 1000 followers who consider him to be god.[2]
