Karibu Mkuu! Yesu Wa Tongaren excites Kenyans after joining TikTok

Eliud Wekesa, better known as Yesu wa Tongaren, a Bungoma-based preacher, has joined the social media network TikTok.

Others quipped that with his online presence, ‘Yesu’ may consider employing authors to capture his life and release a holy book.

“I cannot wait for the challenges he will be doing, we have really embraced this Jesus and I can’t get it.” Cyd Wambui noted.

Mwisukue Wa Atwoli opined that he can now join the platform to keep up with the ‘son of God’ writing: “Atleast I can join TikTok because of him!”

Others humorously reminded him that July will be a time for him to be crucified, referring to his earlier Easter remarks when the pastor responded to a supposed plan to crucify him during the Easter holidays.

Wekesa stated at the time that he will not die a second time for mankind’s crimes.

“Jesus was crucified only once, and since I have come for the second time, it is written that I come to save those who await me, not to die for their sins a second time,” Wekesa said at his home in Lukokhwe village.

The self-proclaimed messiah also disputed the scheduling of Easter celebrations, declaring that they should begin on July 28 and last until July 30.

There are those who cautioned him that social media is not for the faint of heart, with others preparing him to meet people like Andrew Kibe on the platform.
