Neno Evangelism male church members demand apology from Pastor Ng’ang’a
Male congregants from Neno Evangelism Ministries church are demanding an apology from Pastor James Ng’ang’a.
In a demand letter from their lawyers Otieno & Amisi Advocates, the members accused Pastor Ng’ang’a of ‘knowingly using abusive and demeaning words’ to refer to them.
“That on various dates well within your knowledge without lawful excuse and in a public place or at a public gathering you used threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to provoke a breach of the peace or whereby a breach of the peace would have been occasioned and more particularly by using signs and language demeaning and/or derogatory of our clients’ sexual organs i.e. by equating the said organs to the index finger and/or referring to them as “kakitu” and “tuvitu” (which are well known Swahili adjectives, albeit colloquial, often employed to describe items smaller than an average-sized item of the same class),” it reads in part.
They have given the pastor a two-day ultimatum to apologise or else face defamation charges.
He is further accused, of knowingly without lawful excuse, using obscene and insulting language and more particularly by referring to them as “ng’ombe wewe” and “ng’ombe hizi” which according to them are notorious Swahili derivatives for a foolish person.
Thirdly, the congregants allege that, within his knowledge in the presence of media and women folk, he created disturbance in the church by threatening to disable the members’ ability to engage in coitus by use of undisclosed powers.
The male members claim that their reputation has been demeaned in the eyes of the society as they have been depicted as ‘brainless and with vulnerable male organs.’
They are demanding that the Pastor publish an unequivocal apology in one of the daily newspapers ‘of nationwide circulation’.
They further want the apology to be addressed to all the male members of the Neno Evangelical Ministries.
This incident comes a day after the Pastor apologised to Citizen TV’s Linus Kaikai over alleged death threats.
