, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 18 – Televangelist James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism will be arraigned in court on Monday after he was arrested for threatening Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaikai.
According to police, Ng’ang’a was picked up from his church at the junction of Haile Selassie Avenue and Uhuru Highway Sunday night and locked up at Muthaiga Police Station after Kaikai complained he felt threatened following video footage the pastor produced attacking him.
The row started after Kaikai, who is a panellist on the News Gang show, called for regulation of pastors who he referred to as spiritual fraudsters profiting off unsuspecting Kenyans.
In subsequent video that went viral 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.[cresta-social-share]
