Controversial Uasin Gishu businessman and farmer Jackson Kibor famous for being taunted as the Chairman of Men’s conference has given his life to Christ after being baptised today.
The renown farmer and polygamist was baptised today Monday, May 3, at the Boma Inn’s swimming pool by the retired Africa Inland Church (AIC) Bishop Silas Yego and Bishop Daniel Chelagat of Pioneer Community Church.
Kibor noted that the decision to choose the way of the cross was so that God could forgive him all his sins before his departure from the world.
“I thank God for this opportunity. You know in this life there is time for everything and you need to be prepared for anything. We must be ready since you do not know when your time to leave this world will come,” said Kibor.
“I am now old and I have not yet been baptized, yet I am a Christian and a staunch AIC follower,” he added.
The 87-year old urged more youth to give their lives to Jesus Christ noting that it is the best decision.
The baptism was well received by his gfamily with one of his children expressing joy at the decision.
“Mzee Kibor is beginning a new life and he has informed his family. So my advice to people is not to fear to come to the church and get saved,” said Yego. Loice Chemeli, his first daughter from second wife Josephine Jepkoech said.
The prominent farmer was a close friend to retired late President Daniel Arap Moi.
It is his marital life further propelled him to the limelight owing to the manner in which he handles his marriages.
In 2018, An Eldoret Court granted the politician a divorce against his third wife one year after divorcing his second wife. Kibor had filed a suit seeking to terminate his 43-year union with Naomi Jeptoo Kibor whom he married through Nandi Customary laws in 1975.
Reports indicate that Kibor filed the divorce suit on Wednesday, February 28, stating Jeptoo was not supportive, extremely intolerant and causing him psychological pain.
