By GLORIA KAGONYA

Organisers of New Year prayer meetings in Kisumu that will be presided over by Prophet David Owour of Ministry of Repentance and Holiness have shelled out millions of shillings to book all the main hotels in the lakeside city.

Preparations are in full gear at the venue of the three-day event that will start on December 28 and which is expected to attract thousands of faithful.

Pastor Gilbert Kimutai of the Kisumu Alter of the Repentance and Holiness Church said they had booked all the main hotels in Kisumu for a week.

“We are expecting more than 600 international guests to join us for the prayers in Kisumu. We also expect hundreds of thousands of the locals to attend,” said pastor Kimutai.

ROADS TO BE SWEPT

According to pastor Kimutai, the visitors will be booked in all the top hotels in Kisumu.

At the same time, Dr Owour’s followers are working round the clock to make the Kibos prayer grounds accessible by the expected faithfuls. Roads to the venue will be swept a day before the prayers start.

“Healing has been brought right to our doorsteps and we are happy that the people of this area are going to be saved,” said pastor Maxwell of the Car Wash Alter, and also a resident of Kibos.

“Kibos area has had a history of insecurity but the coming of the prophet will change the people and we know many of them will be saved during the prayers,” said pastor Otieno.
