Neno Evangelist Pastor Ng’ang’a in fresh tussle with Kenya Railways over prime land

Televangelist James Ng’ang’a of the Neno Evangelism Church has obtained orders restraining any construction works, selling, disposing of, or leasing the property.

The controversial man of the cloth, in documents seen by Nairobi News, appears to have taken his tussle for ownership of the land against the Kenya Railways Corporation to the corridors of justice.

The case, bearing the identification number ELCLc/E151/2021, has triggered an urgent response from the court.

The matter was scheduled for a hearing on November 7, 2023.

Pastor Nganga has been involved in the tussle with Kenya Railways for a while. In June 2023, he filed a separate order in which the court barred the government entity from evicting him from the land that houses his church.

Kenya Railways insists the prime land, located along Haile Selassie Avenue, is a railway reserve.

Incidentally, in October 2023 the controversial religious figure publicly denounced the government, accusing them of burdening Kenyans with increased taxes.

Ng’ang’a, known for his outspoken views against the government, expressed his grievances during a live church service at the Neno Evangelism headquarters in Nairobi.

Addressing the congregation, the preacher asserted his right as a man of God to speak truth to power, challenging the authorities to shut down his church if they disagreed.

He criticized the government for what he perceived as mismanagement of the economy, stating that they were arbitrarily allocating funds while threatening to close churches.

Ng’ang’a also issued a warning to the leadership of Kenya Kwanza, cautioning them that if they persist in their current course, divine consequences await.

“Speaking as an apostle, you are toying with God, and He will oust you from the kitchen,” he declared.
