In the wake of a controversial BBC documentary titled “The Life and Death of TB Joshua,” Pastor James Ng’ang’a, founder of Neno Evangelism Church, has come forward to defend the late Nigerian prophet against accusations of faking miracles and exploiting followers.
The documentary, aired on BBC Africa Eye, featured testimonies from former disciples of TB Joshua, alleging that he staged healings and subjected them to physical and sexual abuse.
Pastor Ng’ang’a, who personally met TB Joshua during a visit to his church, the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), in Lagos, Nigeria, has stood firm in his support for the late prophet.
Ng’ang’a recounted his visit, highlighting the respect and hospitality shown to him by Joshua.
“I went there. I went to TB Joshua’s church, and when he heard I was around, he ordered I be transferred to another house which was presidential. On Sunday, I went to his church and found my seat and my wife’s had been reserved despite the church being full. I was called. I later invited him to Kenya, but he told me to relax and return to Kenya and spread the gospel,” shared Pastor Ng’ang’a.
Ng’ang’a emphasized that Joshua never solicited money or favors during their interactions. He expressed his conviction that TB Joshua was a true man of God based on these personal experiences.
The BBC documentary stirred controversy within Christian and non-Christian circles, eliciting varied responses.
While some questioned the credibility of the claims made in the expose, others acknowledged Joshua’s humanitarian efforts and philanthropic contributions.
