Controversial Neno televangelist James Ng’ang’a has been arrested by Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives over alleged threats to Citizen TV’s journalist Linus Kaikai.
Ng’ang’a was picked up from his church at the junction of Haile Sellasie Avenue and Uhuru Highway and locked up at Muthaiga Police Station.
Ng’ang’a is set 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 the 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 aimed at Kaikai.
“Mimi sijui kusoma na mimi ndio mwanzilishi wa hii kanisa. Watu hawahitaji kusoma ndio wajue Mungu (I don’t know how to read and I’m the founder of this church. People don’t need to be educated to know God). Hamwezi kutu block, Bunge mmeenda nyinyi, makazi makubwa mmeenda nyinyi, ministers ni nyinyi… sisi watu hatujui kusoma tubaki na kuosha barabara (You can’t block us, you are the ones in Parliament, you are the ones holding big jobs, you’re the ministers… You want us the uneducated to remain washing roads (sic)?” Pastor Ng’ang’a asked.
