Pastor Ng’ang’a released on police bond after arrest over Ksh.3.6M ‘con game’
Neno evangelism pastor James Nganga spent Thursday night at Central Police Station in Nairobi.
He was arrested for allegedly defrauding a businessman Ksh.3.6million.
The controversial preacher was however released on Friday on a police bond.
This comes barely a month after he was arrested over alleged threats to Citizen TV’s Linus Kaikai.
On March 19 this year, Ng’ang’a was charged with threatening to kill Kaikai.
He however denied the charges and was released on Ksh.200,000 cash bail.
The two counts on his charge sheet were: 1) uttering words that constituted as threats to kill Linus Kaikai and 2) while referring to himself as the Chief General Commander, using words that indicated or implied that it was or might be desirable to bring death or physical injury to the Citizen TV journalist.
His sentiments were in response to a statement that Mr. Kaikai made on the popular News Gang show.
The acclaimed journalist had proposed the regulation of pastors –whom he termed as ‘spiritual fraudsters’ — who profit off unsuspecting Kenyans.
“The people behind these so-called churches have gone rogue in the name of Jesus, in the name of God…We are dealing with thieves not men of God. These are cold blooded evangelical vampires living off the blood of their flock in the name of Jesus. They are conmen who must have their date with our police and our law courts. Some of them preach prosperity but only they profit,” Mr. Kaikai said.
