Controversial pastor Apostle James Nga’ng’a was arrested yesterday over threats to journalist Linus Kaikai after the latter called out ‘Church leaders’.
He is to be arraigned in court today.
In a viral video released last week, the pastor, dressed in military-like fatigue and calling himself a “Chief General Commander” threatened unexplained “consequences” believed to be directed at Kaikai.
Kaikai, who is a panelist in one of a news show, News Gang, went viral with his take seeking to regulate pastors he referred to as spiritual fraudsters and are profiting off unsuspecting Kenyans.
This prompted Ng’ang’a to shoot his video with the attacks on Kaikai.
Pastor Ng’ang’a was not impressed and responded swiftly to the dismay of many.
“As a news anchor, why are you saying that? Are all your brother’s educated? Has everyone in your village gotten top notch education?
I thank those who do not know how to read because we will not need degrees to go to heaven .
People do not need to read to know God.
Just shut up ,If you keep saying that bishops are stealing how many times have you come to my church to come to that conclusion.
You have taken all the ‘big jobs’ do you want us who are not learned to be washing the roads?” Nganga posed
Pastor Nganga is not new to controversy last year he was accused of causing the death of a woman in a fatal car crash.
On July 26, 2015 at about 5.45PM along the Naivasha/Nairobi road at Manguo area in Limuru sub-county, he caused the death of one Mercy Njeri through dangerous driving.
The pastor was also accused of failing to report an accident and giving false information to a police officer.
Ng’ang’a also faced a fourth count of conspiring to defeat justice and denied all the charges.
