Thursday, April 27, 2023 – Televangelist at Neno Evangelism Center Pastor James Ng’ang’a has reacted to the ongoing arrests of fellow preachers around the country.
In an amateur video that is making rounds on major social media avenues, Pastor Ng’ang’a is heard daring the authorities to arrest him if they so wish; adding that he has never gone against the doctrines of the Bible.
“I am not educated but you guys are. However, my phone receives money. After you arrested this preacher even you I pray that you undergo the same. The government come for me, this is now too much,” he says.
Homenews.co.ke would shortly learn that the preacher was recording this eyebrow raising clip while on a tour abroad.
In the video clip, the controversial Neno Evangelism Center founder says he has never closed doors leading to his place of worship; and anyone who wants or don’t want to eat can do it at their own freedom.
“Kule Jerusalem asubuhi unakunywa chai na toast mbili,” he said, as he dared the government to arrest him.
Pastor Ng’ang’a also claimed that he had long discouraged his flock from sending him money, adding that he is willing to reverse back such transactions if they happen to come.
His sentiment comes just a day after counterpart televangelist Pastor Ezekiel Odero was, on Thursday April 27, grilled by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations DCI over his doctrine and church operations.
Media following up the developments established that Pastor Odero was also questioned over his ties with cult-leader Mr Paul Mackenzie.
This comes at a time when the government is under immense pressure to regulate churches in the country following the arrest of Mr. Paul Mackenzie, the leader of a cult-like religious group located in Malindi, Kilifi County.
Mackenzie’s Good News International Church has been on the headlines for the last two weeks in the wake of the discovery of more than 90 dead bodies of persons he lured to fast until they die to see the Kingdom of Heaven.
