Kenya National Muslims Advisory Council chairman Sheikh Juma Ngao said there is “nothing like miracle healing under the sun” to be performed by any man or woman of either faith.
Ngao urged the government to investigate and arrest all religious leaders claiming to be prophets.
“The only genuine miracles through God’s help and guidance were last performed by two prophets, Jesus Christ and prophet Muhammad. Any other person claiming to have these powers is just conning the public and it is sin,” Ngao said at a press conference in Mombasa town.
The five people had been taken from various hospitals to receive healing at the crusade on Kaptembwa Grounds.
Ngao said there are no prophets after Jesus and Mohamed.
“It is indeed ridiculous that patients can get out of hospitals where the government has qualified doctors and medicines and get rushed to crusade podiums with an intention of receiving the so-called miracle healing,” Ngao said.
“If the person calling himself a prophet has powers to heal, let him go to the hospitals and offer prayers in the hospital beds. Not parading patients in congested environments.”
Ngao said the government should not allow any more such deaths henceforth.
