Court reveals details of the Sh3.6 million scandal against Nganga

More problems for embattled Nganga

Controversial televangelist James Ng'ang'a1

The High Court on Tuesday directed Pastor James Nganga to take his petition at the trial court and take the plea in the Sh3.6 million case against him.

Nganga had been accused of defrauding a man identified as Wickson Njoroge Mwathi the amount of money which was indicated to be rent arrears for 7-bedroom house in Karen Nairobi.

Reports indicated that the Neno Evangelism pastor had leased the house to Chinese nationals but the deal went south three years later.

Mwathi had alleged that the embattled pastor disappeared with the money.

During the application on Monday to stop the prosecution of the case, the controversial preacher stated that the rent of the house at the time was Sh450,000 per month which was clear of any deductions and was payable annually or in advance.

Nganga had however pleaded not guilty to the accusations and was released on a bail of Sh500,000 cash bail with his next hearing set for May 16.

Nganga attacks Kenyan media

Last Thursday, the bishop had been arrested over conning the businessman and spent the night at Central Police Station in Nairobi before he was released on Friday morning.

The infuriated pastor took to social media to express his displeasure over the media putting him in bad light.
