Bishop Margaret Wanjiru’s son, US-based Kenyan Reverend Evans Kariuki has thanked Kenyans for praying for her mother who contracted coronavirus a week ago.
“I want to say thank you for everyone who has been sending a message and I want to say specifically that as we send these messages, let us speak faith, he stated on his YouTube channel.
He said that COVID-19 pandemic is here because of sin adding that the “remnant’ generation should decipher this and turn back from sin.
“In this season, God is looking for a remnant generation that believes beyond beliefs and a remnant generation that realizes that the reason why the world is where it is today is one reason and one reason only; a three-letter word, sin”.
“Sin is the reason all these things are happening. It’s time as a people, as a nation turns to God. Even as you pray for my family, as you pray for us all; pray for yourself,” he opined.
Bishop Wanjiru, a former Starehe MP is among the high-profile Kenyans who have contracted coronavirus.

Out of the 18 people who had attended the gathering in her house, eight of them tested positive for COVID-19
