A century ago, being a pastor was a calling. Anyone who claimed to be a pastor was highly respected because he was regarded as the sole character every sinner could get information concerning heaven. Today, a very insignificant number of Kenyans have hopes in our pastors.
Our preachers shamelessly take alcohol, marry more than one wife, smoke and even commit sins prohibited by the Bible without being scared of eternal death.
Based on the lifestyle of our pastors, the following are the wealthiest pastors in Kenya.
Bishop Margaret Wanjiru

Pastor Thomas Wahome
