Thousands of Kenyans thronged Kasarani stadium on Sunday, November 27, 2022, to attend a crusade led by Mombasa-based evangelist pastor Ezekiel Odera.
Pastor Ezekiel, who ministers at the New Life Church in Mombasa city, drew a large crowd to Kasarani - a feat that has only been accomplished by seasoned politicians.
Kasarani stadium has a 60,000-seat capacity but on Sunday Kenyans in attendance at pastor Ezekiel's crusade surpassed the number by far as other Christian faithful filled the football pitch as well.
Pastor Dorcas Rigathi, the wife of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, was also in attendance at Kasarani. She stated that Kenyans were starving for the word of God after the stadium was filled to capacity.
She also added that the multitude had gone to witness miracles, healings and wonders by pastor Ezekiel.
Apart from pastor Ezekiel Odera, prophet David Owuor is the only other Kenyan televangelist who commands such a huge crowd.
Owuor is known cause major traffic snarl-ups whenever he goes across the country. The preacher's Ministry of Repentance and Holiness church has branches all over the country.
Owuor has filled the much bigger Uhuru Park to capacity on several occasions. In February 2013, all the big political players including retired President Uhuru Kenyatta and his main challenger at the time Raila Odinga attended Owuor's mega crusade at Uhuru Park where they pledged to have a peaceful election.
