The name Prophet Owuor has become very common, especially in Kenya. Hardly a week goes by without the self-appointed prophet being mentioned. A few years ago Dr. David Owuor or, as is commonly known, the Prophet Owuor hardly known. But in today’s world he is very popular. People know a thing or two about him.
Dr. David Owuor is known for his huge crusades and miracles. He came to the Kenyan spiritual landscape with a message of repentance, pointing out that God is angry at people’s sins. However, his spiritual activities seem different from his preaching.
Prophet Owuor biography
Born in 1966 to Hezekiah and Margaret Ochieng in Goma Village, Usenge, Bondo District, Kenya. David Owuor, popularly known as Prophet Owuor, is the second child in a family of six girls and three boys. Owuor was born into a Christian home and was raised in the knowledge of God by his mother, a devout Christian, homemaker and farmer. His father, a civil servant, worked with the East African Community Prison Service, where he rose to the rank of sergeant major.
Coming from a family that knew the importance of education, Owuor began schooling at an early age. He initially attended Wambasa Elementary School in Yimbo but had to move to other schools where his father was posted as a civil servant. These schools include Jusa, Luzira and Kitalya in Uganda. He later attended Mbale Senior Secondary School where he achieved his “O” level before going to St Peters College, Tororo to obtain his “A” level certificate.
Like his early school year, Owuor’s tertiary education was conducted at three different universities. He graduated from Makerere University with a Bachelor of Science degree but later transferred to the University of Nairobi, where he received his undergraduate degree in 1988. The following year he received his PhD from Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel on molecular genetics, also known as “the science of the future”. In doing so, he prepared himself for his journey as a preacher and prophet of God.
Two controversial issues surrounding the preacher, then, were the fact that he does not derive his wealth from his congregation like most preachers do, and that his prophecies are always “bad news” either for the people of Kenya or for the whole world. Prophet Owuor does not accept donations or offerings from his followers, nor does he encourage Christians to do so in their various assemblies. This leaves people wondering where he derives his massive wealth from.
The Illuminati and Serpent Saga
The rise of the Prophet Owuor came with shock and fear not only to the Kenyans but also to the nations beyond the coast. Not only was he viewed as a prophet of doom, but also one whose spiritual activities represented those of a secret society called The Illuminati.
Not only did he penetrate the hearts of ordinary Kenyan citizens, but he also infiltrated the country’s political system and mingled with high-ranking government officials. He caught the attention of some Kenyans who did not know about him as he is believed to have led former Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga to Christ. Unknown to many people, he spends most of his time lecturing or attending forums and conducting miracle crusades. Call him a prophet of fate, a magician, or like the Man of God, as he’s popularly known. A notable feature of Prophet Owuor is that his prophecies or predictions of future events such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and torrential rains have also been forecast by scientists.
More controversial about the self-proclaimed prophet have been the emerging stories that have referred to him as a devil worshiper. His miracles are said to be staged by the power of Satan, which he is said to have gained by sacrificing his father, who died in 2005.and some members of his congregation. A closer look reveals that he usually dresses in white shoes inclusive. He probably does this to reflect his cleanliness or purity.
Moreso, while Bible preachers and teachers use traditional mass media as a means to reach their congregation. The Prophet Owuor relies on the internet. Every now and then he will release a YouTube video or podcast to give the world a glimpse of a current crusade or upcoming event. He rarely uses the conventional mass media.
In his seminars, crusades, or other forums, the Prophet Owuor does not sell books, anointed oils, handkerchiefs, or medallions. His ministry is interdenominational. He has no affiliation with any particular group and he speaks in every forum, especially those focused on miraculous healing.
More fingers point to the prophet of holiness as a member of the Illuminati followed a controversial story that surfaced in the villages of Kakamega before his crusade. The story was told by the wife of the Prophet’s driver, who reportedly died after the incident in a nearby forest in the village. According to the woman, her late husband found the Prophet kneeling naked in front of a huge pile of snakes and uttered some words in an unintelligible language, but was told never to reveal what he saw or he would die. Eventually he told his wife, who later found him dead after asking her to prepare water for his bath.
Prophet Owuor’s wife and family
The life of the Prophet Owuor is undoubtedly in mystery. He is one of the most famous prophets in the world. The reception he gets everywhere says it all. Oddly enough, the Prophet is without a wife or family. The minister defended why he was not yet married, explaining that his calling had not given him the opportunity to do so. Having a family, he said, will bind him and he may not be able to follow God’s will.
Nevertheless, the preacher had revealed that he had a son in Israel and wanted to marry the mother, but moved to the US and the girl refused to go with him. He also said he lived together in the US, but the woman left after he started seeing visions.
From the above facts it is clear that information about the self-proclaimed man of God is still quite limited. In fact, the details seem to be getting grayer as more people try to get more information about him.
