Reverend Victor Githu’s mother, Judith Nduta has reacted to claims that her son scored 227 marks in the just concluded Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations.
Speaking with a local publication, Nduta took issue with netizens who have been spreading false news about her son, adding that he did not seat for KCPE exams.
She added that Victor studies in an international school and performs very well.
“Victor is still in Grade Six, when schools reopen he will join Grade 7. It is not true that he sat for the exams. He is a brilliant boy who studies in an international school and performs very well,” Nduta said.
Nduta added that her son has been a victim of cyberbullying, however, noting that he does not concentrate much on negativity and falsehood circulated online.
“There is a page on social media which bullies this child but we just leave everything to God. There is even a post about single mothers in hell which has been circulating online but they are all lies,” she said.
This comes months after Githu clapped back at critics dismissing his ministry as a child’s play.
Responding to critics, the 10-year-old preacher admitted to receiving backlash from a section of netizens who believe he is too young to comprehend what he preaches.
“I got a lot of criticism; I saw a lot of fake news. I got a lot of fake pages pretending to be me. I got a lot of things. I handled it because I have the Holy Spirit in,” Githu said.
“The Bible says that if you don’t have forgiveness, you will always have block on your prayers. I got to the point where I was convicted to forgive those people and asking God instead of punishing them that He changes them.”
He added that negative comments affect her mother but tries his best to encourage her not to think about them too much.
“My mother used to cry a lot asking me, ‘Why are you doing this, why are you allowing me to go through all this?’ and I told her this, If the person being abused doesn’t have stress, why are you the one having stress?
“I understand she is my mother and wants the best for me, but I tell her, don’t get stressed; worse of all, don’t get depression, just enjoy life how it is,” said Victor.
