Pastor Ng'ang'a unleashes his wrath on Linus Kaikai
Wewe kijana umeingia line ya Ng'ang'a you'll face the consequences
The Neno Evangelism preacher, in a video posted social media, criticized Mr Kaikai's calls to regulate preachers who have taken religion too far and marred with allegations of fraud and fake miracles.
Bishop Ng'ang'a, who has been marred in controversy in the past, admitted that he is not educated but that would not stop him from preaching the gospel.
Donning expensive jewellery, Ng'ang'a stated: "Mimi sijui kusoma na mimi ndio mwanzilishi wa hii kanisa. Watu hawahitaji kusoma ndio wajue Mungu (I don't know how to read and I'm the founder of this church. People don't need to be educated to know God)."
The preacher cautioned Kaikai from making reckless remarks and claiming that preachers are stealing from their flock.
"Hamwezi kutu block, Bunge mmeenda nyinyi, makazi makubwa mmeenda nyinyi, ministers ni nyinyi... sisi watu hatujui kusoma tubaki na kuosha barabara (You can't block us, you are the ones in Parliament, you are the ones holding big jobs, you're the ministers... You want us the uneducated to remain washing roads (sic)?" Pastor Ng'ang'a asked.
He argued that education was not a determining factor for one to be a pastor.
Kaikai had argued that preachers need to be regulated and ensure they have relevant papers such as certificates of good conduct and certificates indicating they have studied theology.
He gave an example of Rwanda, where President Paul Kagame closed thousands of churches and dozens of mosques arguing that it had threatened the lives of followers.
Pastors were required to have a theology degree before they start their own churches so that they teach correct doctrine.
The majority of churches that have been closed are said to be small Pentecostal prayer houses, with some preachers suspected of growing rich off often impoverished followers.
