A self-proclaimed Pastor identified as Paul Sanyangore, recently made the headlines after he allegedly blessed condoms for his church members during a service.
According to Nehanda Radio, the church members both married and unmarried all scrambled to grab their own ‘blessed condoms’.
Pastor Sanyangore, regarded as one of the most controversial pastors in Kenya told reporters that he did not bring the condoms but a congregant brought them asking if it was proper for her to use them.
He said: “I prophesied to a certain woman that her husband would return two years after his mysterious disappearance. I am not sure but during the week, the husband called her telling her he would come back home.
“She came to church and during prayer time, she took the condoms out and handed them to my assistant asking if they were okay to use when her husband returns.
“I saw nothing wrong in her using them with her husband after two years of absence. Who knows what he was doing there so it is better to be safe.
“When I prayed for the condoms, some women came out and wanted to have them.
Pastor Sanyangore, who is known for performing several miracles said God heals any diseases and the condom gospel puts him on the spotlight.
He added: “God heals and protects but people should always be on the lookout. A woman comes to church but the husband doesn’t and some of them vanoita chipfambi zvekuti mukadzi ndiye anokwara. HIV is a reality which we should all be aware of. We preach but some do not repent.
“Communication is what we preach in our church, husbands and wives should communicate about these things because people are dying. Let us empower the women and not beat them because she has suggested to use protection.
“To those who are not married abstinence is the key. Most people think condoms are a ticket for sleeping around but that is not it. It is actually wisdom from God for one to invent the condom.
“We have a prayer house, we call it our spiritual clinic and we usually help men who have challenges in the bedroom. This has nothing to do with condoms. We have had this prayer house for a long time and we call it Eden House.”
