Pastor Ng'ang'a's bank accounts frozen
28 August 2015, 14:44
Nairobi - Pastor James Ng'ang'a's bank accounts have been frozen, the High Court has announced.
The High Court has frozen the accounts after businessman
Geoffrey Ndung’u sued the under fire televangelist, accusing him of swindling him of KES 2.3 million.
In his court papers, Ndung’u says he moved the funds from his account
to one of Ng'ang'a's church Neno Evangelism Centre in April 2012 after receiving prayers from Ng’ang’a
for mental problems.
Ndung’u says he was on medication for a psychotic break when he transferred the funds and was therefore not in his right mind.
He says efforts by himself and his family to have the funds returned to them have borne no fruit, leading to forcing him and his family to go to court.
Ng’ang’a has thus far denied any knowledge of the funds being transferred into his
church’s account but argues that in the event they were, it was
received as a gift and gifts are not refundable.
" If such money was deposited in the church’s account, it was
deposited without coercion, inducement and was an absolute gift," the
The case is slated for mention on September 22.
The news is not good for Ng'ang'a and his followers as he has in recent times been in court for allegedly killing a woman through dangerous driving.
He is currently out of jail on a KES 500,000 cash bail.
