Pastor Ng’ang’a of the Neno Evangelism has been charged with threatening to kill Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaikai.
The court released the pastor on a cash bail of Sh 200000. The pastor was arrested on Sunday after Mr. Kaikai, the Director, Strategy & Innovation at Royal Media Services, filed a complaint with police over the “consequences” threat from Mr. Ng’ang’a who will be arraigned in court later in the day. He had threatened inexplainable consequences that the journalist would face for his statements on the ‘men of the cloth’.
Neno Evangelical Ministries Pastor James Ng’ang’a had blasted news anchor Linus Kaikai who had made a statement that men of the cloth ought to have a theological degree before being allowed to take the pulpit.
Kakai asked the government to follow in the steps of Rwanda where President Kagame ordered the closure of close to 6000 churches in a bid to regulate.
Pastor Nganga told the journalist to keep away from matter that did not concern him. He told the Citizen TV journalist that he should go for the pastors and Bishops he had issues with and not generalize all men of the cloth in one category.
He admitted that he was not learned and did not have a degree but that did not hinder him from spreading the word of God.
