Controversial pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism has once again stirred up controversy with a viral video showing him waking up a woman caught napping during one of his church services.
In the video, Pastor Ng’ang’a addresses the sleeping congregant, asking where she came from, and instructs her to leave the service temporarily to “take a breather.”
“Where are you from? Wake up and take your stuff. Leave and stay outside; you will come later,” he exclaims. In a humorous tone, Ng’ang’a suggests a solution to her sleepiness, advising her to “go out and be rained on, let the rain cool you down.”
The pastor also warns congregants against sitting next to someone dozing off, stating that he will remove both individuals if he finds someone sleeping close to another.
“Nikikuta mtu amelala akiwa karibu na wewe nakutoa na yeye,” or “If I find someone sleeping close to you, I will remove both of you.”
This incident is not the first time Pastor Ng’ang’a has been involved in controversial situations.
In a separate video, he instructs an usher to pour out the money collected as tithe, expressing disappointment that most contributions were in smaller denominations.
Ng’ang’a has also given unmarried individuals a six-month ultimatum to get married.
“For people who have not married or been married, I have given you a six-month ultimatum. If not, why should your wife or husband be snatched? Do not tell me about mpango wa kando; stop this nonsense.”
