Televangelist James Ng’ang’a arrested for “threatening Linus Kaikai”

Published

on

Controversial televangelist James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism was Sunday night arrested for threatening Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaikai.

Pastor Ng’ang’a was picked up from his church in Nairobi at the junction of Haile Selassie Avenue and Mombasa Road and locked up at Muthaiga Police Station after Kaikai had complained he felt threatened following a video footage that the pastor produced attacking him.
Police said he was praying with other worshipers when he was picked up after being informed of his crime at about 11pm.
Police said Ng’ang’a will be arraigned later.

In a viral video released last week, the pastor, dressed in military-like regalia and calling himself a “Chief General Commander” threatened unexplained “consequences” believed to be directed at Kaikai.
Kaikai, who is one of the panelists in a news show, News Gang, went viral with his take seeking to regulate pastors he referred to as spiritual fraudsters who are profiting off unsuspecting Kenyans.
“The people behind these so called churches have gone rogue in the name of Jesus, in the name of God,” Kaikai said.

“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.”
“To these characters, Sunday, a day ordained as the Lord’s Day of rest and worship has become the most profitable day on the trading floor. Offerings flow like a mighty river and onward into their private accounts in the Lord’s name.”

Kaikai listed few instances when pastors have made the news for conning members of their churches and minting millions off illegal schemes.
This prompted Ng’ang’a to shoot his video with the attacks on Kaikai.
“I am telling you like a Chief General Commander, you have to stop that, if you don’t stop you will face the consequences…” said Pastor Ng’ang’a.
“…. I can’t hide you but you can hide me.”

“I’m here to encourage the young couples not to shy to ask for mchango; those who don’t want to changa dont attend people’s weddings they are expensive… even Jesus changad for a wedding by donation of his miracle to turn water into wines… weddings are meant to be a merry making event watu waonje Mali yako… life is not that serious jameni,” Sarah posted on her Instagram page

Phylliskariuki said; “Everybody should live their lives the way they deem fit. Big wedding, good for you, small wedding good for you too. Let’s not impose on others.”

“Let everyone do what is best for them. I admire this couple. They have spent decades together, why spend millions on a formality? Where I come from, if you dare ask for contributions for your wedding, you may end up not marrying, as people believe you have to be financially ready before you take that step,” posted sunshinebalogun .

“Sarah please let people be, be! To each their own. Stop giving wrong advice. Big weddings are good if you can afford, small weddings are good, no weddings are good. To each their own lady Sarah,” commented w.a.m.z.y.

I’m just different not cultish, Esther Arunga’s ex-pastor now says

Published

on

When Joseph Hellon Onyango holds a saxophone, women shiver; or at least that is what he says they tell him when they attend his performances. When he plays the sax or the flute, what emerges is a vibration of sounds that he has now purposed into what he refers to as “his call.”

He calls his music godly, and is quick to add that he does not believe in what people classify as gospel music. For him, as long as music has a positive message and lifts people’s spirit, then it is right by God.

Hellon is a preacher. A different one. He believes a pair of coloured jeans and curls like the ones on his head have nothing to do with winning souls.

His church, the one that landed former television star Esther Arunga into controversy, is up and standing.He says the service is held every Sunday at Kenya School of Law and he has more than 300 members.

Back then, the church was called Finger of God, a name Hellon says he chose after carefully reading the bible.

“Finger of God is holy spirit. The Law of Moses was written by the finger of God. There is nothing dirty about that name as Kenyans were suggesting,” he says.He says when his church was at the centre of bad Press in 2010, around the time when Esther Arunga had resigned from her job to be fully involved in church and become a politician, he contemplated changing the name.

In March this year, the church changed name to Kingdom Embassy International. He in partnership with an American preacher, run other churches globally.“When I was facing the devil in 2010, my church was alone. I realised the importance of partnerships. I imagine things would have been different if I had support,” he says.Hellon has mastered the bible.

He says he has read Genesis to Revelation, and in between, he has learnt to forgive people, including the media who called his church a cult.

Serious counselling

“There is nothing cultish about my church. I am controversial and I do things differently. Our messiah was controversial. Preachers who are not should ask themselves if they are really working for God,” he says, as he plays his golden sax at his Karen home in Nairobi.

On Thursday, a few hours after Arunga had been handed a 10-months suspended sentenced by an Australian court, social media erupted blaming Hellon for her woes.“I met Esther at a church event. I was a singer and she was emceeing. We talked and decided to do business together,” he says, explaining the start of a friendship that many believe ruined Arunga.

He says she also wanted serious counselling, a task he was ready for since he was a preacher. The jazz maestro says he was contracted to work for the Famous Tusker Project Fame show and he says when Quincy Timberlake, his former schoolmate at Kokuro Primary School in Migori saw him on TV, he reached out and they rekindled a friendship that has since been severed.

“He came to my church and he is the one who helped in registering the Placenta party where I was vying for president with Esther as my deputy,” says Hellon.

Their relationship, church activities and mannerism became an issue of public concern.It has been nine years since they made news, and his church put under police investigations. The case filed against the church was dismissed for lack of evidence. Hellon says he has grown even more.A faithful, identified only as Bullah says he has never met a man wiser than his spiritual leader Hellon.“When you talk to him, you realise he is different and he understands the bible better than most people,” he says.

Hellon’s wife Kuyu notes that no matter what was reported about her husband back then, nothing would have changed her mind from believing in him.“I knew there was nothing wrong with his church. If you know your husband, there is nothing that people say that can shake you,” she says.

When conversations about religion and people losing their all come up, as they often do when the saga surrounding Hellon and his church spring up, he believes someday God will descend, and it is then that people will realise his church was genuine. Until then, he waits. And while he does, he takes the deepest breath, and blows into his saxophone.

“They call me the maestro. That I am! Other things like cults are fragments of their imagination,” he says.

This is the new life of former TPF hottie Esther Nabaasa

Published

on

Her breakthrough was when she was signed by UG Records and during that time, being signed to a record label was a big plus for an artiste.

Esther Nabaasa had just won the second edition of the Tusker Project Fame (TPF). She was highly believed to be the next big thing after Juliana and Iryn Namubiru.

“I want my music to hit the international scene. I want to be marketable all over the world,” were her words soon after returning from Kenya where she had participated in the competition along with 18 other contestants.

But that did not happen. Nabaasa’s singing career lasted as long as her one-year record deal with Universal Music Group in South Africa.

QUIT MUSIC

There were stories that she had quit music after just a few songs such as Sing From the Nile, Yoga Yoga and Watwala Omutima Gwange.

Word then was that she was going to concentrate on her marriage to producer Michael Fingers. The couple have two children now and Nabaasa never completely quit music.

She settled for songwriting and she wrote some of the songs on Bebe Cool’s Go Mama album that was released in 2014 as well as Juliana’s Bits and Pieces.

Besides that, she also does music for commercials and last we heard is that she hit a jackpot writing one of the songs in Natasha Museveni Karugire’s 27 Gunsmovie.
