Ronald Wanyama: The Self-Proclaimed John the Baptist from Bungoma Who's Written Bible, Married 46 Wives
In Bungoma, a county in the Western part of Kenya, an 82-year-old man Ronald Wanyama claims to be the John the Baptist inscribed in the Bible.
Deep in Nandolia village, Kanduyi, Bungoma county, there is an 82-year-old man who claims to be the John the Baptist inscribed in the Bible.
Ronald Wanyama alias Yohana Tano Nabii, has written his own 'bible' which has 93 books which he uses to teach his followers at Muungano Church.
Speaking to TV47, the self-proclaimed prophet said it is God who instructed him to add more books as the 66 found in the Bible had reached an end.
"I myself was in Israel, I am the one who baptised Jesus. No other John the Baptist was born, it is me, so between Jesus and me who baptised him, who is more powerful?" posed Wanyama.
Wanyama said he broke ranks with his parents 62 years ago to serve God, something that he said he does not regret.
“All my services are linked to the Bible. I am the only God’s man who will change the gospel of this world," he added.
Praying for the sick
Further in the interview, the octogenarian said God gave him the ability to prophesy, pray for the sick and treat patients with herbal medicines.
At his homestead, there is a church which consists of wards that he uses to admit patients in bad condition.
He claimed he has healed millions of people all over the world suffering from HIV/AIDS, cancer, leprosy and wounds.
He however said he does not charge his clients arguing that it is a gift given to him by God and so he will not let people pay him.
Married 46 wives
The prophet married 46 wives who are identified as queens. However, four of them died leaving him with 42.
He is blessed with 289 children.
Due to his large family, Nabii has five residences. Three are located in Bungoma (Nandolia, Matulo and Webuye), while two are in Kitale and Lugari in Kakamega county.
The youngest of the wives is aged 23. Despite his old age, he said he intended to add more women saying he still has stamina.
Outside the house, there is a flag which has 11 colours and is surrounded by 12 stones which he said are symbolic.
For instance, Wanyama said the white colour symbolises the light while red depicts the sun.
The man of God has also written two constitutions which he urged the Kenyan government to promulgate failure to which the problems facing the country will not end.
