The pre-trial conference has is set for April 3, 2019
Last week, the man of God hit out at Kaikai after the latter suggested that only preachers with a Degree in Theology should be allowed to spread Godâ€™s word
Neno Evangelism Centre founder Pastor James Ngâ€™angâ€™a was on Tuesday released on a cash bail of Sh200,000.
The controversial televangelist had been charged with threatening to kill Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaikai in a video that went viral last week.
He appeared before Resident Magistrate Justus Kituku at the Kiambu Law Courts and according to the charge sheet, the pastor was also accused of referring to himself as the Chief General Commander using words that â€˜indicated or implied that it was or might be desirable to bring death or physical injury to the Citizen TV journalist.â€™
The pre-trial conference is set for April 3, 2019.
Last week, the man of God hit out at Kaikai after the latter suggested that only preachers with a Degree in Theology should be allowed to spread Godâ€™s word.
In a video that went viral on social media, Ngâ€™angâ€™a warned Kaikai to steer clear of church matters and focus on journalism.
The visibly angry 66-year-old apostle also admitted that he is not schooled but will not go back to school because it is too late.
He further asked Kaikai to stop interfering with church matters or else he will face the consequences.
â€œMbinguni hatuendi na kisomoâ€¦kusema mtatengeneza katiba ya kufungia wahubiri ambao hawajui kusoma ni makossa. This is Kenya not Rwanda.
â€œWewe ni news anchor, unaongea hivyo kwa nini? Ndugu zako wote wamesoma? Mimi sikusoma na mimi ndiye mwanzilishi wa hii kanisa.
â€œUfunge mdomo yako, I am telling youâ€¦deal na ule bishop mmekosana,â€ he said.
(We will not need degrees to enter the gates of heaven. Suggesting that only pastors with degrees will be allowed to preach is impractical. This is Kenya, not Rwanda. You are a news anchorâ€¦You should not be talking like that. Are all your relatives learned? I did not go to school but I am the founder of this church. Shut your mouth and deal with the bishop who offended you.)
