Father John Pesa Clarifies Old Age Made Him Say King Solomon Killed Goliath

tuko.co.ke 10/14/2020

- Coptic Holy Ghost Church leader John Pesa has apologised to the public for misquoting the Bible stating the mistake he made was as a result of his advanced age

- The preacher on Monday likened Deputy William Ruto to Biblical character David but instead said it was King Solomon who killed Philistine monster Goliath

- Father Pesa also distanced himself from claims that he was only interested in receiving a paycheque after visiting Ruto's home

- The cleric claimed he has been receiving threats from unknown people since his Monday visit to Sugoi

Coptic Holy Ghost Church leader Father John Pesa has expressed displeasure in people who have gone into overdrive of tarnishing his name over King Solomon and Goliath remarks he made on Monday, October 12.

TUKO.co.ke earlier reported that Father Pesa stirred a heated conversation while speaking at the Sugoi home of Deputy President William Ruto where he said King Solomon killed Philistine giant Goliath.

While addressing a press conference in Kisumu on Wednesday, October 14, the man of the cloth said his remarks were as a result of a slip of the tongue exacerbated by his old age.

"I started reading the Bible while I was still a very young boy and I continue doing so. It was David that killed Goliath and not King Solomon as I had mentioned. You should understand that I have become an old man.
I have learnt that some people have started tarnishing my name because of my utterances on Monday. That is not good, we must all respect all our churches and the religious believes of others even if we don't subscribe to the same principles," said Pesa.

After Father Pesa made the mistake, a section of netizens understood what he meant but others lashed out at him with some describing the preacher as "a fake pastor" only interested in money.

"I want to make this clear. My intents are not after making money. For your information, I have dedicated all my life to the gospel of God. That is why I even don't have a wife.
All the money that I get goes into building the church," he said in response to claims that he visited Ruto's home with an aim of receiving a paycheque.

In a separate story, TUKO.co.ke reported that the clergyman claimed that he has been receiving threats since he visited the home of the country's second in command.
