Hypocrisy: Gilbert Deya: November 2009 Archives

November 25, 2009

Any relation?

United Kingdom: Police are investigating whether a man who allegedly stabbed his son to death in a frenzied attack is related to "miracle babies" pastor Gilbert Deya. Unfortunately the media have not explained why they are looking for such a connection, nor why it would be relevant. There is some discrepancy with the suspect's name, though: the BBC calls him Paul Otieno; the Daily Mirror Paul Deya. The latter, though, has not carried the story about his possible relative.

The press all point out something else though:

Neighbours have said the family were regular churchgoers.


Neighbours said they were a friendly family who regularly went to church and had lived in the flat for a year...

The last time I saw them was Sunday. You could tell they were going to church because they would come out all smartly dressed.

British efficiency.

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.
