In scenes that can only be matched by Obama’s welcome, thousands of Prophet Owuor’s adherents lined up along the streets to welcome the man they fondly prefer to call ‘the mighty Prophet of God’.
In their thousands, adherents of the Repentance Ministry lined up Uganda Road to usher in the Prophet.
Residents of Eldoret who were going about their businesses had to momentarily stop to savour the unfolding spectacle as Prophet Owuor brides formed a formidable buffer Zone along the routes used by the Prophet by creating a chain-link of defence through interlocking their hands along the streets he used.
Security was evident as a team of Officers drawn from the neighbouring Stations kept vigil. They were heavily aided by the security-cautious adherents who left nothing to chance. All entrances leading to the accomodation venues were tightly manned by mean followers who zealously inspected all vehicles and people with very little regard to their social status in society.
Business was brisk in the town as Kikuyu merchants sold the most precious item of the day-a whistle!
The whistles came in handy during the welcome of the Prophet as it created drama when the followers whistled in unison as they shouted ‘man of God welcome!Holy spirit welcome’.
When he finally arrived in a fleet of sleek state-of-the-art machines reminiscent of Obama’s the Beast, a thunderous cheer went through the eager crowd. Eldoret residents were seen perched strategically on all tall buildings to catch a glimpse of the man.
There were unconfirmed reports that some of the adherents of the Prophet had attempted to clean sections of the road using soap and water! It is alleged that they were stopped by the County government on the ground that the streets were clean this time due to the efforts of Governor Mandago of improving infrastructure in the town. Rumours milling round the town suggest that a mysterious rain washed the very section of the road that they were denied to wash!
The thousands of decently dressed Owuor brides created a spectacle in the town with many a man heard saying that they were the right material for wife with their long dresses whose hem extended to the ankles.
Indeed, the coming of Prophet has woken the City of Champions with the arrival of this guest without a Gold Medal from Beijing!
Prophet Owor's welcome in Eldoret town this evening.
