Alete DNA! Why Pastor Ng’ang’a won’t help his struggling daughter


Pastor James Maina Ng’ang’a, the founder of Neno Evangelism, has addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding his first daughter, Naomi, and her appeal for assistance in her son Jonathan Wise’s medical treatment.

Ng’ang’a shed light on his decision not to be involved in the matter, revealing insights into his tumultuous relationship with Naomi.

Ng’ang’a, who sired Naomi while working as a herdsman in Kinangop, spoke to Nairobi News about the strained relationship with his first daughter.

The televangelist explained that Naomi had not been actively involved in serving in his church, leading to differences between them.

Speaking at his church on Sunday, December 10, Ng’ang’a discussed his approach to supporting his children, using examples from his other offspring.

He highlighted his willingness to assist children even if he did not marry their mothers.

However, he made it clear that active participation in his church played a role in his decision.

“I have so many children out there. If you want me to accept you, Nyambura (Ng’ang’as daughter) has a twin brother. I lived with their mother for six months, and she ran away, saying she was going to bring her clothes, but she did not come back.

I come to see the kids when they are grown-ups. Her [Nganga’s ex-partner’s] sister told me, and I accepted them. Nyambura ministers in my church, but the brother does not. So, if the brother is having a problem, how am I involved? It cannot happen that I am his biological father, yet he does not support me. ”

Addressing Naomi’s case, where she claimed her father had refused to support her son and went to the media, Ng’ang’a challenged her to undergo a DNA test and questioned the legitimacy of his paternity.

He emphasised the importance of respect and highlighted Naomi’s refusal to serve in his church.

“I have seen her speaking, saying I am her biological father. Go and bring your mother; we do DNA first. Even if you bring your mother, there are other men involved. Stop putting my name in the media and defending your nonsense with me. Stop, or you go to the grave earlier. If I were your father, you could have bought me even a jacket or a pair of shoes. I saw her in my home empty-handed, not even a kilo of sugar. Respect is very important. What you plant is what you reap.

I called you to come and serve at my church, but you refused.”

He concluded by advising people to cease sending him videos and instead direct Naomi’s concerns to her mother.

“I have said many times that I am not a pastor or a bishop. I will not follow up the dowry issues. Please stop sending me those videos ask her to go to her mother.”

Naomi’s son, Jonathan, is battling a severe case of B-ALL Leukemia.

The family, having faced financial strain throughout Jonathan’s medical journey, is now appealing to well-wishers, individuals, and organizations to come forward and support Jonathan in his fight against leukaemia.
