Controversial preacher Gilbert Deya to spend six nights at Kamiti Maximum Prison

Controversial televangelist Gilbert Deya, 65, has been remanded at Kamiti Maximum Prison until Thursday next week when Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi will determine his bail terms. The choice of Kamiti was made by Deya himself following a judgement on extradition in the UK. Deya was deported from United Kingdom to Kenya and arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) at 4.40 am today (Friday). The controversial preacher is facing child-trafficking charges after it emerged he had deceived some of his followers that he had powers to cause infertile women to deliver miracle babies.
The self-proclaimed Archbishop of Gilbert Deya Ministries allegedly through prayers, helped several sterile women in Kenya and Britain to give birth. His wife, Mary, was arrested in November 2004 in Nairobi and charged with stealing children. Ten children, none of whom had any genetic connection to the Deya family, were found at the couple’s house in Mountain View estate. Kenyan police immediately sought the preacher’s prosecution over child trafficking charges. A decade long warrant of arrest had been pending as Deya fought against extradition from Britain.

He had appealed against the extradition on grounds that he feared being tortured as well as facing a death sentence. The appeal was rejected on July 12 by a London Court.
