United Kingdom/Kenya: The last we heard of "Archbishop" Gilbert Deya was in January 2008 when he lost his appeal against extradition from the UK. So, presumably he was returned to Kenya and tried over the allegations of child-trafficking against him.
No, not quite. He's still in London. It seems the UK is only prompt in extraditing people if they are gay men fleeing Iran, or Uganda or other such places where they kill pooves.
The long-awaited extradition of controversial London-based Kenyan preacher Gilbert Deya may happen soon, the Sunday Nation has learnt.
Impeccable sources confirmed that the preacher, who is wanted in Kenya on child-trafficking charges, is now a failed asylum seeker currently ordered to report weekly to Deptford police station in South London.
The new details of Mr Deya’s complex and costly legal tussle emerged on November 2, after it became apparent that he had exhausted all avenues of appeal in the United Kingdom. It is believed legal costs amounted to more than £1 million (Sh124 million).
Deya’s extradition is not a question of if but when. He’s living on borrowed time; the net is finally closing in; he could be extradited from London before Christmas,said a well-placed source.
Deya currently claims he fears for his life because he opposed the Kenyan president before he left the country.
