Pastor Ng’ang’a’s Transformer Comment On Live TV Draws MCK’s Attention


MCK was referring to a video clip that went viral on social media on Sunday, October 9 where he warned Kenyan nurses against groping his private parts in the event of his death.

The Media Council of Kenya (MCK) has announced that it will take action against Sasa TV, a station owned by controversial Nairobi pastor James Ng’ang’a.

Its statement issued on Thursday, October 28 faulted the station for providing him with the platform to address not just his church audience at the Neno Evangelism Center, but to his TV audiences who were watching from home.

The announcement was made after it completed the due processes for breach of the Code of Conduct for the Practice of Journalism in Kenya. 

“The Council notes that the media house in question breached clauses 5 (b) (c) on Accountability and 10 (1) on Obscenity, Taste and Tone in Reporting by allowing a presenter, Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’a in a live broadcast from ‘Jerusalem City Kenya’ at 1024 hours where he uttered offensive and unprintable words on air.

“We have subsequently directed the media outlet to show cause why action should not be taken against it, further to which the Council will institute relevant sanctions in line with our mandate,” read its statement in part.

MCK further noted the possible breach of the programming code for free-to-air radio and television services in Kenya and has since notified the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) accordingly for investigation.

It cautioned media houses, editors, journalists and media practitioners against airing offensive content and warned of stringent penalties that will be administered in line with the Media Council Act, 2013.

The Neno Evangelism Center founder made it crystal clear that young and underage nurses should not contemplate playing with his penis to ascertain its actual size. 

“When I die, I believe my God… these female nurses will not touch my private parts.  

“I will die even on the road, you cannot touch my private parts saying ‘come and see Ng’ang’a’,” he directed. 

His sentiments were shared in a video that has gone viral on social media and drawn the ire of many of his followers who believed he stretched his moral limits a bit too far.

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was among those who slammed Pastor Ng’ang’a owing to the outrageous directive. 

He steered himself away from his comments stating that his sexual overtures were too much to the point that he needed divine intervention. 

“Pastor Nganga I’m your follower and supporter but on this one No No No No Hapana Hapana Hapana. Umezidi Punguza ushimolatewa (You have exceeded your moral limits). You need prayers,” Mike Sonko tweeted.
