Self-proclaimed prophetess Jemmimah Wangari charged


You have probably come across this face preaching across the streets of Nairobi mostly along Kencom and Archives areas along Tom Mboya street.

This self-proclaimed prophetess goes preaching around town and has been caught in several scandals since the President Mwai Kibaki Regime.

She has previously been heard saying that many people of the Kikuyu tribe would die, some people would die in Parliament and wanted to tell the would why Kibaki got into power while ‘crippled’.

The ‘Prophetess’ Jemimah Wangari Waruingi has now been charged with creating disturbance in a manner likely to cause breach of peace outside Harambee house.

Wangari was charged that on 25th June 2018 at Harambee House along Harambee avenue in Nairobi, she created a disturbance in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by shouting to security personnel guarding the premises….”Lazima nione Mr Matiang’i,Lazima shida yangu ijulikane leo” words calculated to create breach of peace to members of the public.

The ‘Prophetess’ pleaded guilty to the offence before Principal Magistrate Kenneth Cheruiyot.

In mitigation, Wangari told the court that the issue began after filing of a succession case where she is seeking to be in charge of her late husband’s property currently in the hands of his brother-in-law.

She said the matter was filed in Nakuru Law court and the in-laws agreed to have her be the heir. They were told to file the succession within three months but failed to do so.

When she went back to Nakuru law courts, she was not accorded hearing but was advised to file the matter and serve the respondents afresh.

Failure to be accorded hearing led her to hold a three hour crusade outside the court which according to her attracted a lot of people.

“After that I asked God what he wanted me to do next and he told me to go to Harambee house to see Matiang’i,” she told court confidently.

She claimed God had told her that if she went to tell Fred Matiang’i her problems, he would take her to Chief Justice David Maraga.

The magistrate directed that she goes before a probation officer and tell her the relevant bits regarding the case.

The matter will be mentioned in the afternoon when the probation report will be tabled.
