US preacher and actor Michael Job, who ‘impersonated’ Jesus Christ, has denied reports the Government has deported him.
Kenya’s Government had reportedly deported the Whiteman who landed in the country 10 days ago for taking money from Kenyans to perform miracles and secure seats for them in heaven.
But in a post on his Facebook page, Mr Job wrote on 30 July that the reports were “fake news” because nothing of a sort happened.
In fact, he is still in the country preaching and holding a crusade where many people have been “saved and healed.”
“Hey guys! Just to let you know there has been many false “fake news” reports here in Kenya about me,” wrote Job.
“I just did 9 days of crusades in Ongata Rongai, Kitengela, and Kiserian Kenya where many people were saved and healed. I dressed up as Jesus during these crusades my awesome friends and I performed many plays focusing on the life of Christ.
“Some people, known as “internet trolls”, have made false reports about me claiming to be Jesus, Jesus’ second coming starting in Kenya, me being found and worshipped in churches, and me being deported with pastors from the country, all of which are “fake news.”
He continued: “I have gotten many messages and just wanted to let you know I am still here in Kenya, preaching in schools, hundreds of children are making decisions for Jesus every day. This morning many students surrendered their lives to Jesus, and we are going to the next school right now.
“Thank you for praying for us, also please do not pay any attention to the “fake news” or any attention to the media publications of which posted these things. May the Lord abundantly bless you!
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. (Mark 16:15)”
Two Kenyan pastors who empowered him had also been arrested, however, it is not clear the authenticity of the report.
Michael Job lives in Orlando, Florida, where he has been playing Jesus at The Holy Land Experience theme park, which describes itself as “a living, biblical museum”.
Photos and videos showing him speaking at an event in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi have been widely shared on social media across Africa.
Tweeters have generally been making fun of the photos:
My favourite scammer this month is this fella that convinced some people he's Jesus.

A Kenyan pastor claims he has found Jesus Christ walking on the streets of Kenya. Took the whiteman to his church, gave him a warm welcome and now his church followers are happy that Jesus has finally come back!
And lucky for them he landed in Kenya first. 🤦🏾♂️🧐🤫 pic.twitter.com/2iUJqIha1Q
