Man confesses he stole bibles to preach word of God

A man who was recently arrested for stealing two bibles from a municipal supermarket has said he stole them to preach the gospel.

The man, identified as Augustine Wanyonyi, was charged before Milimani Chief Magistrate Susan Shitubi, and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

According to him, he wanted to know more about God and his word after he developed suicidal thoughts, so he decided to steal the holy books. He added that he had a strong belief that the word of God would break his bondage.

Wanyonyi stated this after the state counsel, Alice Mathangani, read a police report in court that revealed that he (Wanyonyi) went to Naivas Supermarket located along Moi Avenue in Nairobi around 3:00 pm on Monday, January 30, and stole two bibles, which he hid inside his pants.

The suspect was caught on the CCTV cameras installed in the premises and was apprehended when he refused to pay for the items.

“I stole the Bible so that I could read, understand, and preach the word of God instead of committing suicide due to the problems I’m facing.” Wayonyi said.

Meanwhile, the prosecutor told the court that the accused had a previous record of shoplifting and had been charged in December 2021.

The magistrate ordered a pre-sentence report to be submitted to the court within seven days and scheduled to show up in court on February 16 for sentencing.
