I am not dating Governor Sonko- Rev Lucy Natasha

Reverend Lucy Natasha

Young, gorgeous and stylish Reverend Lucy Natasha of the Prophetic Latter Glory Ministries International is driving Kenyans wild. And it’s not about the ‘word’.

Her pictures, in which she is snapped posing elegantly next to pricey SUVs and limousines, have lit up social media in recent weeks.

Kenyan men are fascinated by her looks, designer wear and cars, while the women can’t have enough of the young, lithe hunks in crisp suits who stand guard next to her.

This is however not the first time the bubbly woman of God who was branded the ‘sexiest preacher in 2015’ has sent tongues wagging.

When she appeared in the public limelight, her poise, freshness, youth and beauty were so bewitching that Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko confessed his undying love for her on the pulpit.

Days later, the two met, then drove to Sonko’s Machakos home for prayers after his father’s death. The whispers began, and rose to a crescendo when her pictures dripping of Sonko-like flamboyance- big, expensive cars, trendy clothes and bodyguards started circulating on social media. What? Could they? Were they? Was he? Did he…? The answer, it appears, is hell no! 

“I only know Governor Sonko as a servant of Nairobians. I accompanied him to his home because he had lost his father and as a preacher, I can offer condolences. I also recognise and appreciate what the governor’s wife is doing in terms of assisting the poor and vulnerable members of society,” she said, adding that the brash city politician has nothing to do with her costly fleet of cars.

The youthful preacher equally wondered why everyone was fussing about her flashy cars, which she referred to as “material things”.

“I’ am not fascinated by big machines. I view these cars merely as means of transport. If it was the days of Jesus, people would be talking of donkeys!” she cracked.

What’s more, she laughed off rumours that she walks around with bodyguards, saying the handsome men Kenyan lasses have been drooling over are merely “stewards”.

“I don’t know why people say I have bodyguards. The guys you have been seeing are my spiritual sons and daughters who are part of a protocol team to maintain order,” she told The Nairobian.

Natasha explained that any member of her ministry who wishes to become a steward is given an opportunity to serve.

“In fact, I have thousands of spiritual sons and daughters like them across the world. Even Jesus had 12 men because one cannot serve in the ministry alone,” she said.

But it’s not just her association with Sonko that is sending tongues wagging. Natasha, who is now referred to as “Oracle of God”, has been linked with controversial Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, a wealthy and controversial South Africa-based Malawian preacher and founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church.

Bushiri is an enthusiastic social media user with an appetite for showing off his newly acquired properties to millions of his followers. His most memorable social media brag was the Gulf Stream III private jet estimated to be worth Sh3.7 billion, with a white-leather and mahogany interior. In an interview with BBC, Bushiri claimed he owns four private jets.

The preacher who uses the title ‘Dr’ has previously claimed to heal those afflicted with HIV and the blind, and that he was once seen to appear to walk on air. His church boasts of ‘miracle oil’ bottled in containers with the preacher’s face, which is claimed to heal all manner of ailments.

Could he be the one funding her lavish lifestyle? No, says Natasha, Bushiri is as an “anointed man of God” but has no role in her ministry.

“My spiritual father is Archbishop Arthur Kitonga of Redeemed Gospel Church. I meet a lot of other men of God. I have known Bushiri and his wife for some time now. He is among young men of God, I respect him. The blessing of God makes rich, it does not bring sorrow, that’s why I don’t preach about poverty because I believe it is the cause of malnourishment and leads to prostitution,” she explains.

So why is such a fetching beauty still single? Natasha says she doesn’t want her marriage to be an endurance, but a source of enjoyment and that’s why she is waiting on the Lord.

“I’m waiting for God to show me the right man. In fact, 2019 keki tunayo (we will have a wedding cake next year)! I’ll continue serving God and humanity and waiting for the right time because He is the one who determines,” she told The Nairobian.
