Controversial pastor James Ng’ang’a could be set free of charges facing him after threatening to kill Citizen TV journalist, Linus Kaikai, in March this year.
According to the journalist, the Neno Evangelism bishop apologized to him before Chief Magistrate Patricia Gichohi at the Kiambu Law Courts.
Taking into his Twitter page on Monday, Kaikai noted he accepted Ng’ang’a’s apology and had consequently forgiven him.

Kaikai and Ng’ang’a’s ugly spat started after the journalist hit at preachers for conning church members and minting millions, while suggesting that only pastors with a Degree in Theology should be allowed to spread God’s word.
“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,” he added.

In a harsh rejoinder, the agitated 66-year-old preacher warned Kaikai over impending ‘consequences’ as he proceeded to describe himself as a “Chief General Commander”.
“Separate preaching na hii sarakasi za news anchor, nakwambia tu kijana. (I am telling you like a Chief General Commander, you have to stop that, if you don’t stop you will face the consequences…” Pastor Ng’ang’a stated.
