Televangelist James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism Centre was on Sunday night arrested for threatening Citizen TV 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 after Kaikai had complained he felt threatened following video footage that the pastor produced attacking him.

Police said Ng’ang’a will be arraigned in court later on Monday.

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.
