Gilbert Deya can't be all bad, though, right? After all, even the Queen of England seems impressed. Or is she?
The full story of how the Queen was tricked into meeting a self-styled Archbishop wanted for baby smuggling can be revealed by the Sunday Mercury today.
A high-level church source told the Sunday Mercury how the 2002 meeting, held at the Broadway Theatre, was arranged.
Kenyan Airways were initially due to greet the Queen on behalf of the Kenyan community in London.
But someone inside the church used their influential contacts to ensure that Deya conducted the proceedings instead, providing him with a priceless photo opportunity.
The amazing set of pictures is now being used by the Gilbert Deya Ministries on booklets promoting the church and its leader.
The church source also rubbished claims that Deya owns a jet. The aeroplane he is photo-graphed next to on his website, and uses throughout his promotional literature, was only hired, he said.
"The aeroplane was hired during one of his frequent trips to Kenya," said the source. "His supporters arranged for him to have it for the day and took a load of photographs of him with it.
"Many of the pictures on his website and in his magazines are made up. He's rich by Kenyan standards, but he is not nearly as wealthy as he makes out."
