Pastor James Ng’ang’a , the Neno Evangelism preacher has said his firstborn son is a US citizen.
The Neno Evangelism founder said they came to America when his wife was pregnant and had the son born in Carolina.
Mr Nganga who is on a US tour said he may not be educated but he is street smart. He said his firstborn son with his second wife – his first wife passed away – was born in America making him an automatic citizen.
“I’m smart, it is only that I did not get an education. Mimi ni mjanjaree. She gave birth to our son in Carolina, now I have an American child, so when we go to get our visa’s he lines up in the mzungu lane and us the other lane.”
“There is a year I came to America like six times, I was so jaded because of the nasty jetlag. At the time my wife was very young, I do have a young wife, so in one of the trips, at the time she was pregnant, she came and gave birth here.”
Introducing himself in one of his tour speeches in the USA, Mr Nganga said: “I’m James Maina, not learned. The little I know is used to spread the gospel. I have a TV station called Sasa TV and I’m a crazy preacher as in matata, like it or not.”
Pastor Ng’ang’a narrated how he was in prison and did not get a chance to pursue further education.
Adding, “It doesn’t matter what people are saying about you, you talk about yourself. I’m a rich preacher, I have cars and hotels…”
He also revealed to the amused congregation that he has a newborn child.
“Na musini ulize maswali mengi (Don’t ask too many questions about that), hiyo itatrend” he said laughing.
