Integrity sets a bar high for people in crucial professions, especially the ones which deal with service to humanity.
When a person who is expected to preserve his or her integrity goes overboard, many questions about his or her suitability are raised.
Controversial televangelist James Maina Ng’ang’a who was on Thursday evening arrested for allegedly defrauding a businessman Sh3.6 million.
Ng’ang’a was released on police bond on Friday morning after spending the night at Central Police Station in Nairobi.
After hours of interrogation, he was freed on a police bond on Friday morning.
The pastor has also been in the news for all wrong reasons.
Reports of him extorting money from his followers in the name of anointing oil are rampant.
The preacher, who is facing charges of killing a woman through reckless driving and threatening to kill journalist Linus Kaikai, is set to appear in court later on Friday.
The Friday court date will be the preacher’s second in less than a month.
On March 19, Mr Ng’ang’a was charged with threatening to kill Mr Kaikai and incitement to violence and released on a Sh200,000 cash bail or Sh300,000 bond.
The charges came after he released a video clip in social media issuing threats of unknown consequences against the journalist who had criticized rogue preachers and called for regulation of the religious sector, including a requirement of higher education for clerics.
The preacher Ng’ang’a quickly responded by posting a self-recorded video in which he bashed Kaikai for his comments.
In the three-minute video, he told Kaikai not to compare Rwanda to Kenya and that degrees are not a qualification to enter heaven.
