Maina Njenga Biography, Political Career, Networth & House

Maina Njenga was born on January 2, 1969, he was the 4th born child and second son of Kamunya Njoroge a chef at Kericho Tea Hotel.

Maina grew up in Karandi, Laikipia West, and went to Ol Ng’arua Primary School until 1984 before proceeding to Ortum Secondary in West Pokot. But while in Form 3, unhappy with the school, he FORGED his transfer letter to Jomo Kenyatta High School in Nakuru.

According to him (and of course uncorroborated), one afternoon in class, a white dove flew in and perched on Njenga’s head. He tried to chase it away but it came back three times.

Njenga started behaving strangely. He would assemble students and read to them imaginary News shortly before 1pm. Surprisingly, the real news bulletin from Nairobi would have the same content as his. This earned him the nickname VOK (Voice of Kenya) and a prophet.

On December 4th, 1987, he claims, he was abducted by a hand that pulled him through the thatched roof of his hut and was taken to heaven. He died and burial plans were arranged. Three days later when he was supposed to be buried, a bright light came from the skies, opened his coffin and he stood up.

Msiniulize maswali coz hata mimi sielewi. But since he is a pastor, let us blindly believe everything because it is written, do not touch my anointed.


It is hard to quantify how much Njenga is worth. He is on record telling Kenyans he used to earn an untaxed salary of ksh 1 million a month plus other gifts from politicians who would visit him at night.

Maina Njenga Properties

His properties include (but are not limited to): over ten modern houses, sizeable tracts of land, his rural home on 50 acres worth 7M, his second rural home in Oraimutia on 50 acres, hundreds of sheep and cows, his Ongata Rongai home on 15 acres, his Isinya mansion on 25 acres, another in Karen, hundreds of matatus and top of the range vehicles.

He also owns a church full of men. The mother of all his property investments is an 8 bedroomed home on 30 acres in Kitengela.

Maina Njenga is from a humble background and average education and rose to become the leader of a murderous sect believed to be behind the beheading of hundreds of Kenyans who went against Mungiki. Isn’t that terrorism?

He has never held a job, ran for office, or won a lottery. But he has been a good friend to Daniel Moi, Raila Odinga, and Margaret Wanjiru. With Kamlesh Pattni, they formed a bogus council of elders that visited the likes of Muammar Gaddafi crowning them with funny titles.

When Narc came to power in 2003, have you forgotten the claims that the previous government had assigned MILITARY vehicles to Mungiki? Icio kimi.

Following the Mathira massacre, Njenga was held at King’ong’o Prison. But he had a secret card up his sleeve. BLACKMAIL. Through his lawyer Paul Muite, he threatened to name all the politicians and rich men who were friends of Mungiki.

Miraculously, the state withdrew all charges. Incase you forgot, it was the same day Cholmondoley Delamere was also released.

Njenga was driven to Jesus Is Alive Ministries where he got saved from I-don’t-know-what. I remember a Gado cartoon of the Bishop telling the dreadlocked, drug-taking new members that the offerings remained at her church.

Remember he had at one point become a Muslim alongside his cousin, former Mungiki leader, and now a pastor, Ndura Waruinge.

Maina Njenga Wife

His wife was killed by Kwekwe and her body was left lying in a mortuary waiting for him to be released in 2009. After her burial, it was rumored that he was now dating the widow of a late athlete but she vehemently denied it.

Following last weekend’s attempted assassination, his latest wife was also murdered. You have to think twice before marrying him.

Maina Njenga Political Career

Maina Njenga and his team caused chaos at GEMA’s Limuru 2a rally since his dream was to be the head of the affiliated Kikuyu, Embu, and Meru communities following the death of Njenga Karume.

He went ahead to organize a rally nicknamed Limuru 2b which was disrupted by police but was supported by Raila Odinga. The ruling Mt Kenya mafia wouldn’t let him.

Together with Laikipia Senator G G Kariuki, Njenga formed a political party known as Mkenya Solidarity Movement and attracted some ODM members such as Brian Weke, Bob Ndolo and Ngunjiri Wambugu.

Maina Njenga Church Closed Down

Armed police officers closed down the church in Kitengela associated with Njenga, citing security concerns. More than 100 worshipers, who had turned up at the Hope International Ministries Church, were requested to leave by a contingent of armed officers.

The officers drawn from Isinya District arrived at the church a few minutes past 9am and asked the faithful to leave. Njenga’s home is still under the guard of 10 armed officers. Authorities cited intelligence reports that Maasai morans planned to attack worshipers.

This came a day after authorities stopped the burial of Njenga’s wife at his home in Kitengela and escorted him under heavy security to avert confrontation with members of the Maasai community.

Although the worshipers complied with the order, some questioned the motive. ”I had come for a church service as usual and did not expect to be barred from the place.

I am aware that there is a faction currently tussling with our Bishop (Maina) but I don’t see its relation to the church,” said a member of the church.

Addressing journalists, Kajiado County Deputy Commander Joel Lang’at cited intelligence reports warning of violence. ”This is a security matter and we are not taking chances.


We have assessed the situation and found it prudent to close the church to avoid confrontation between the community and Njenga’s followers,” said Lang’at. He further said they have beefed up security in the area to avoid chaos.

Peter Maingi, the church’s pastor said followers are ready to cooperate with authorities though they are yet to understand the basis for the closure.

Armed morans who were planning to cause havoc had the church service proceeded dispersed, saying they were satisfied with the closure.

Maina Njenga Shot

Mungiki leader’s car was riddled with 25 bullet holes. While Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku quickly denied that police were involved, Maina has been adamant that the attempted murder was executed by police officers.

Ole Lenku instead blamed infighting in Mungiki for the gun attack as authorities named those who were killed.
