Pastor Ezekiel Odero Biography, Age, Tribe, Family & Phone Number

Pastor Ezekiel Odero was born in Homabay County. He was a fisherman, a young man from a poor background. He was not fortunate enough to complete his education. In an interview with NTV, he mentions that he did not finish his third year at university. He was educated by an NGO and his grandfather.

Because Luo is the home of English, Pastor Ezekiel explains how hard it was to get Sarah because she did not fully attend the school system and was unable to speak English.

“Some of my family members informed me that Pastor Sarah didn’t go to school when I wanted to marry her. She is not fluent in English. What will the large people say if you marry her and they show up? When I looked at my wife, I didn’t see an English speaker but rather a lovely lady who can manage a ministry. ” He added, “English can’t run a ministry.”

I was then informed by her father that “I have given you my daughter and her sister,” but I told him that I just wanted Sarah.

” She fled because her father and uncle didn’t want me to have her. We were unable to see since it was nighttime. When she returned, her father and uncle had consented to let me marry her,” he added.
