The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) has fined popular televangelist James Ng'ang'a over content aired on his Sasa TV free-to-air channel.

CA Director of Public Affairs Chris Wambua stated that the Neno Evangelism Centre proprietor exposed a woman's breasts during a Live TV show during hours when adult content is restricted.

"He has been fined 1 million shilling for continuing to broadcast when a woman’s breast were exposed.

"This happened during the watershed period which is in violation of one of the Communication Authority rules and regulations. He was first issued with a warning which we expected him to stop but he did not," Wambua explained.

According to the CA regulations, adult content is strictly prohibited on TV between 5 am and 10 pm. It is also known as the watershed period.

In his defense, Apostle Ng'ang'a has claimed that he should not be held responsible for whatever happens during what he calls a deliverance service.

He further claims that he had appealed CA's decision to fine him and he is still waiting for feedback on whether his appeal was successful.

Kenya Films Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua had on Thursday remarked that the televangelist needed to be regulated.

"Much as the government should not regulate churches in terms of what believers choose to put their faith in, the content delivered by the pastor may be scrutinized. He shouldn't be allowed to con people in the name of a pastor.

"And this is why I believe NCCK, EAC and others should call Pastor Ng'ang'a and have a conversation. We are not against religious leaders like Pastor Ng'ang'a but I believe all this madness comes because we have shown him and even our political leaders that they need to do crazy things so that they trend," Mutua stated.
