Sorry for that - rare video of Apostle Ng'ang'a giving an apology surfaces online

The fiery televangelist humbles himself

Apostle James Ng'ang'a apologizes to Linus Kaikai at Kiambu Law Courts over death threats issued in March

Neno Evangelism proprietor Apostle James Ng'ang'a has issued a public apology to Director of Strategy & Innovation at Citizen TV, Linus Kaikai.

Mr Kaikai shared a video of the popular televangelist in court stating that he is sorry for having threatened to kill the journalist in March, this year.

"Nimemwomba msamaha Bwana Linus Kaikai kama alikasirika kwa hilo jambo (I ask Mr Linus Kaikai to forgive me for the incident that angered him)...sorry for that," Ng'ang'a stated before Chief Magistrate Patricia Gichohi at the Kiambu Law Courts on Monday.

In response, Mr Kaikai stated that he had forgiven the clergy man and accepted his apology.

Apostle Ng'ang'a is known for his abrasive manner of dealing with issues and he is even known for hurling vulgarities and never apologizing for it.

Linus Kaikai versus Apostle James Ng'ang'a

Kaikai filed a complaint against Mr Ng'ang'a after the cleric used his pulpit to issue the perceived death threat.

"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," Ng'ang'a threatened.

Mr Kaikai had used the Citizen TV platform to call for law reforms, similar to those in Rwanda, which would bar pastors without a Theology degree from starting and preaching in churches.

Apostle Ng'ang'a, who is himself not a Theology scholar, took issue with the remark and accused Kaikai of meddling in affairs he does not understand.

"Wee kijana wachana na mambo zako, Na kama umeingia laini ya Pastor Ng’ang’a, my friend you will face the consequences, I can’t hide from you but you can hide from me, wewe utakimbia tu…" Ng'ang'a responded.
