Prophet Kanyari is back! ‘Send sh500, I reward you with sh30,000!’ – Video
Controversial Kenyan televangelist Prophet Victor Kanyari has emerged again with another ‘panda mbegu’ (seed sowing) scheme.
Kanyari, the lead preacher of Salvation Healing Ministry, now goes by the name Bishop Mwangi, which he says is his other official government name.
In a video clip seen by Nairobi News and that had gone viral for the better part of Wednesday, Kanyari is seen telling his followers that he will reward anyone with KSh30,000 if they made a KSh500 offering.
Kanyari offers to reward anyone who sends him KSh300 with KSh7,000 and KSh5,000 for KSh200.
“Nimesema ukitumia mia tano nakutumia elfu thelathini, ukituma mia tatu nakutimia elfu saba na ukituma mia mbili nakutumia elfu mbili, wewe ndio nangojea nikushughulikiehe,” Prophet Kanyari is seeing announcing.
Loosely translated to if you send sh500 I reward you with sh30,000, if you send sh300, I send you sh7000, I am waiting to help you, “heard saying.

In 2014, Kanyari was caught on camera by Nyali MP Mohamed Ali (Jicho Pevu) – then KTN investigative reporter – performing fake miracles using potassium permanganate, which turns purple when dissolved in water.
The controversial pastor used this chemical reaction to convince followers that his prayers washed away mysterious diseases by asking them to step into the water and witness the disease being ‘washed away’ as the water changed colour.
In his live TV performances, Kanyari would normally request anyone who wanted a miracle on his behalf or his loved ones to make a KSh310 offering contribution.
He based the amount on the book of Malachi 3:10.
That saga resulted in his gospel singer wife, Betty Bayo, divorcing him.
But the man has since repackaged himself as Bishop Mwangi, with a somehow different voice and ‘reloaded’ miracles, for which he asks for a discounted Sh250 as a “seed offering”.
Recently, he prayed for actor and comedian Omosh – real name Joseph Kinuthia. Check out the session in the video below.
