Nairobi-based televangelist James Ng'ang'a has publicly apologised to Citizen TV's Linus Kaikai for threatening to kill him.
Pastor Ng'ang'a ate the humble pie in a Kiambu Court on Monday before Chief Magistrate Patricia Gichohi, according to Mr Kaikai.
The pastor, who founded Neno Evangelism, was arrested in March this year and charged with threatening to kill Mr Kaikai.
This is after a video of the pastor was posted online in a tirade against the media.
"I have today forgiven Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism for the threats to life he directed at me in March this year. Pastor Ng’ang’a apologized to me before Chief Magistrate Patricia Gichohi at the Kiambu Law Courts and I accepted the apology," said Mr Kaikai.
Following the circulation of the video in which the pastor referred to himself as the "Chief General Commander", Mr Kaikai filed a complaint with the police.
In what seemed to be a self-recorded video, Mr Ng'ang'a said there would be 'consequences', a statement believed to be targeted at Mr Kaikai.
The Citizen TV's strategy and innovation director had proposed that MPs pass laws to tighten noose on rogue churches run like personal fiefdoms and who scam unsuspecting Kenyans.
“Separate preaching na hii sarakasi za news anchor, nakwambia tu kijana. I am telling you like a Chief General Commander, you have to stop that, if you don’t stop you will face the consequences…” Mr Ng'anga said the video.
Mr Kaikai is not the only one to propose such regulations.
Kenya's former Attorney-General, Prof Githu Muigai, also proposed tough regulations to stop mosques from being used as breeding ground for terrorists and curtail the increased commercialisation of churches.
