- Pastor James Ng’ang’a was not as remorseful as the parent expected him to be while begging for school fees on his TV show
- The man of God had a rude response, even reminding the caller that he had not gone to school himself
- The controversial preacher said fee problems should be addressed with the Kenyan government
Pastor James Ng’ang’a had a rude but hilarious response to a parent who called his line during one of his TV sermons.
The man of God is known for his no-nonsense preaching approach, never hiding what he thinks to be the right way of approaching something.
In an undated clip shared by Mwende Macharia on Instagram, the pastor could be heard criticising a caller on his show for asking him to help with a kid’s school fees.
Ng’ang’a questioned what he was supposed to do in such a case, considering that he never went to school.
He said his show was specifically for spiritual matters, and those with fee problems should take it up with the government or fundraise.
He accused many parents of taking their kids to private schools while they could not afford it.
“If you have problems with school take them to the government or do fundraising. Some of you are so showy and take kids to private schools but you don’t have the money,” he said in the short clip.”
Fans agree with pastor
Many who created Ng’ang’a’s message noted that he was right and always spoke the absolute truth.
Here are a few reactions:
“I agree with Nganga! Private na huna hizo pesa? Ya kazi gani? (sic).”
“This man always speak the truth which Kenyans don’t like.”
“Amesema ukweli (sic).”
“He’s definitely telling the truth.”
“Hapa na support Nganga 100%.”
“It’s true social influence is what kills most parents because you saw my kids are in private you taking yours and you don’t know my source of income.”
Grandfather to many
Recently, an undated video of pastor James Ng’ang’a bragging about having several children surfaced on social media.
Ng’ang’a said he is a grandfather to many grandkids living in different parts of the country. While addressing his congregation, he said:
“Niko na watoto wengi. Wengine ni wazee kabisa na wengine wamezaa. Mimi ni babu wa watoto wengi sana. Wengine wako Kirinyaga, Ukambani, Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu sina number mzuri sana kwa sababu sikuwa nimepata wengi labda moja moja wale walikaa Mombasa. Lakini Ukambani nilitaga mayai kabisa (I have so many kids, some are grown ups and have children. I’m a grandfather to many. Some off my kin are in Kirinyaga, Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu and Eastern part of the country. But it Ukambani I have so many because I was with many women from that region).”
Ng’ang’a added whenever he visits the eastern side of the country, he comes across people who resemble him and is convinced they are related.
