Kenya's Televangelism Empire Questioned

Televangelism is growing across Africa, but most especially in Kenya where religious programmes are led by powerful and charismatic pastors who often preach unconventional ideas, like miracle cures for HIV and AIDS.

For many pastors, it is a lucrative business, prompting concerns that they might be exploiting the commitment of their followers.

And if you're a high school dropout who discovered Jesus while serving time in prison for robbery, you can have a lucrative preaching career while never having heard of Canada.
