Neno Evangelism preacher Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’a has continued to play down the Media Council for threatening to shut down his TV station.
The controversial televangelist stated that he neither sells condoms or drugs but he preaches the gospel of Jesus of healing and deliverance.
"I'm not selling condoms or drugs, I'm preaching the gospel and you can't tell me what gospel I preach or not. It is too late, you will not torment me like the last time. Remember yesterday I got an anointing of 30 years," Ng'ang'a noted.
He claims he will not bow down to pressure or take instructions from the Media Council but only from the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK).
"No station will tell me what to air or not only CCK," he added.
Ng’ang’a accused MCK of acting beyond its jurisdiction, saying that he is only answerable to CCK. He further stated that by virtue of his profession, he is compelled to say things as they are without sugar coating.
“I am under CCK. We report to CCK. Find my P.O.Box to CCK and request what you want, then I can send my lawyer to answer you. I am a preacher. I preach depending on the message that I have. If somebody is trying to intimidate me, then this time is too late Media Council of Kenya,” he said.
The Media Council of Kenya had on Thursday, October 28, 2021, accused the televangelist of violating the code of conduct of journalism citing the use of offensive language on live shows and discussions.
“The media house in question breached clause 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’s at 1024hours where he uttered offensive and unprintable words on-air,” the statement issued by MCK read in part.
