James Maina Ng’ang’a is a famous wealthy televangelist pastor who has been all over the Kenya press.


For starters, he was 66 years old as of 2019. He married Loise Murugi in 2012 after his first wife (with whom he had four children) had passed away. And this is when the lolcowery started. She filed at the Milimani Children's Court in Nairobi claiming he was physically abusive and not providing for her two children. She also later learnt that he was adulterous, sleeping with staff and bringing married women to their matrimonial bed.

While they were traveling to China for Loise's sister's graduation, he started bad-mouthing her on the plane and then abandoned her and her mother at the airport.

Rather than attend the sister's graduation, he told her he didn't care about attending it. Then James went on a shopping spree spending Sh3 million (3 million Kenyan shillings). At todays rate that would be equal to about $28,011. He reportedly apologized for this afterwards.
She alleges he has gotten drunk and become physically abusive towards her. There was a brawl between them. He texted her and told her not to come back to the house. He changed the locks on the doors so that she was forced to move back to her mother's house with their child. When they later met at his house over the incident, he got drunk and beat her up. (Keep in mind we are talking about a man in the cloth here). On August 3rd, she packed her baby daughter's clothes and drove off with the family car. He called the Nairobi Police to come and collect the automobile. Loise has filed in court that he is not competent to be granted custody of their daughter and that he is drunk and abusive and respects no one (not even her mother). Now at this point you may brush this off as simply a marriage gone bad and a guy with mental problems. But wait a minute, there is much more. I've only scratched the surface.

He is an ex-convict who has served several jail terms for theft, illegal possession of firearms, and other misdemeanours.

He was charged with dangerous driving on Julyi 26, 2015 after he got in an accident in which someone was killed and another person was in critical condition Witnesses say he was drunk and driving on the wrong side of the road. After the accident, he disappeared and left the car behind. Dirty and stained panties, empty beer bottles and both used and unused condoms were found in Apostle Ng’ang’a’s Range Rover at the scene of accident.

In 2012 the pastor was involved in a previous accident in which Mr. Gathee's 16 year old son was also run over and killed a few meters from the 2015 accident.

It appears that the police and the prosecutor deliberately bungled the case: On August 27, 2015 Limuru Senior Resident Magistrate Timothy ole Tanchu denied a request by the prosecution for his DNA samples. He wanted a blood sample from the pastor to be analyzed so it could be compared to the blood at the scene of the accident.

On May 3, 2018, the pastor had a meeting with the judge(Limuru Magistrate: Godfrey Oduor) and offered him Seven Million Shillings to acquit him and his co-accused. Two days later, the judge was promoted by Chief Justice David Maraga. Later than month, the pastor together with the police officers who were his co-accused were acquitted of the crimes they committed.

Who needs church tithes when you make plenty from your other businesses:

Well...at least he is honest about it.
"I'm rich and don't rely on church offerings". He mentioned that a man at his level who waits for offerings is offensive. "I have over 50,000 pieces of onion as we speak how then would one say that I am dependent on offerings?".
According to the news article, the pastor owns a second hand car selling business in Nairobi, a multi-million shilling luxury hotel along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway, a multi-million mansion in Karen (a suburb of Nairobi) as well as other residential homes across Kenya, the Neno Evangelism Church (which he funded with his car selling business). He also owns several luxury cars. 

He formed Neno Evangelism in 1992. As at 1997, the church was estimated to be worth 100 million Shillings

In 2012, a local radio station reported that a drunk Ng’ang’a got into a fight with his wife and security guard

He embarrasses a poor women who attends his church because she has a paper bag and old shoes:

Here is the transcript:

NG’ANG’A: Kuja na mfuko yako… How can you be this smart, then you carry this [classless] reusable paper bag?

WOMAN: [Inaudible].

NG’ANG’A: What are you using it for? Ni ya nini?

WOMAN: [Attempts to explain, though her voice is inaudible].

NG’ANG’A: Wapi bag yako? Are you confused? Umechanganyikiwa?

WOMAN: [Looks down, feeling humiliated].

NG’ANG’A: [Takes her by the arm and directs her to stand at the centre of the pulpit]. Utabebaje bag kama hii? Ama wewe ni mganga?

WOMAN: It is a paper bag.

NG’ANG’A: Ni ya nini?

WOMAN: Nimeitumia kubeba leso.

NG’ANG’A: Kwa nini umevaa rubber [shoes]?

WOMAN: Kwetu kulikuwa na mvua.

NG’ANG’A: Na viatu iko wapi?

WOMAN: [Looks down, suggesting she is embarrassed].

NG’ANG’A: Na hizi nguo ni wewe umenunua, ama umenunuliwa?

WOMAN: Ni mimi nimenunua.

NG’ANG’A: [Looks at her hair, and touches it]. Na nywele, ni wewe umetengeneza ama ni ile ya kuwekelea?

WOMAN: [Inaudible].

NG’ANG’A: Una miaka mingapi?

WOMAN: 48.

NG’ANG’A: Uh, 48, wewe umechanganyikiwa. Nenda ukakae. 48 ni sawa wewe kuvaa slippers. Hata ukikuja mikono mitupu, [ni sawa].

There were allegations of bribery. In November 2018, he was accused of paying off Tanzanian gospel artiste Rose Muhando 5000 Kenya Shillings if she would put on a show faking that she was demon-possessed. Pastor Ng'ang'a then videotaped this in his church where he recorded "exorcising demons” out of the “Nibebe” star. He later denied his demonic exercism and stated that he only “attended to her as a doctor would attend to a sick patient”.

On Sunday November 20 2019, the Kenya newspaper: "The Nation" attended Sunday service at a packed audience at his church:
I will highlight the juicy stuff(This guy is a lolcow goldmine).

During the session for the church offering: "Last Sunday I asked you to come with Sh1,000. Today I want to see how many have done so. Some of you want to become rich but can’t spare Sh1,000 to give to the pastor."
Remember folks: "I am rich and don't rely on church offerings".

Testimony time:
11 men and women walked to the front to give their testimonies. All of them wore reflector jackets indicating they had been pre-selected for this.

One of them testified that he had been previously enabled by the devil to command a snake with seven heads and make women fall in love with him just by speaking to their shadows.
Another one testified that he could kill her relatives just by wishing bad fortune on them.
Another one testified that he had nightmares of being pursued by a giant snake.
The journalist stated that this part of the session lasted a good two and a half hours with the pastor asking them leading questions in order to get them to air more and more of their dirty laundry.
Then he ridiculed some of them and suggested they were to blame for their own problems.

A sample of his A-Logging: he asked a woman who narrated how her children had been sent away from school for lack of school fees. "You couldn’t afford school fees worth Sh4,000? You don’t have a husband? You were unable to pay Sh4,000 only?"

When you go to one of his church services you are forced to stay for the entire service. Apparently his security or whatever will prevent you from leaving until the service is over.

Moneytime - The offering time itself lasts about an hour and it is its own little service. The ushers all female go around with big bags collecting the loot. They stand by your seat until you have paid up. Only banknotes are permitted, no coins are allowed. When one of the reporters gave a 50 Shilling note,(it was not enough), one of the ushers stepped down and whispered to the person:" God is watching you. You are stealing from the Lord."

After the offering is concluded, the regular service comes to a close. Then it is exorcism time for his "Delivery Service". The pastor will pray over and drive the demons out from you (for a price - this will cost you an extra 3,500 Shillings). If you don't have the money, then he will ask you to pay whatever you can and come up with the balance next Sunday.

One of the drawbacks of Simple Machines Forum is that you cannot directly sort the posts according to those colored tags like you can with Xenforo. The tags are applied to the boards not individual posts. However it is possible to sort the tags with a spreadsheet and embed the spreadsheet directly on my website as a workaround.

Forum Updates / Conflicts Category
« Last post by Administrator on May 23, 2020, 01:32:53 AM »
I have created a new category called "Conflicts" that will deal with conflict in general skirmishes in countries, political slapfights, pissing matches between countries and so forth. This will take a little time to develop but I think it will greatly improve the content of the board. I will probably want to condense the countries section since it does not seem to get much bang for time and effort I put into it.

Gassingbe Family - Togo / Gnassingbe family of Togo
« Last post by Administrator on May 21, 2020, 09:45:59 PM »
I wanted to start a thread on the Gnassingbe family of Togo. I will give a brief background from the Wikipedia. Eyadema Gnassingbe was born on December 26, 1937 to Gnassingbe Sr. and N’Danida Eyadema. The Gnassingbe family came into power in 1967 in Togo with Etienne Gnassingbe Eyadema overthrowing Nicolas Grunitzky. Gnassingbe ruled until he passed away and his son took over. Eyadema was a close personal friend of French President Jaques Chirac.
Statistics
Born: December 26, 1935, Pya, Togo
Died: February 5th 2005

Eyadéma at Andrews Air Force Base in the US in October 1983

During his 38 years of ruling, hundreds of political opponents disappeared. It was charged that he fed his opponents to crocodiles. He created a bizarre personality cult which included an entourage of 1000 dancing women whose purpose was to lavish him with songs of praise. He also had a large bronze statue of himself in the square in downtown Lomé. For $20 a Togolese could purchase a wristwatch with an illuminated portrait of himself on the face that appears and fades out every fifteen seconds. He commissioned a superman-like comic of himself in which he is portrayed with supernatural powers. On January 24th 1974, he was the survivor of a plane crash on a Douglas C-47 Skytrain carrying several notable political figures that crashed near the village of Sarakawa. Misrepresenting himself to be the sole survivor of the crash, he attributed his survival to supernatural powers and proclaimed January 24th to be “Economic Liberation Day”. He passed away from a heart attack on February 5th 2005.
Eyadema had 3 wives and 135 children. There is no telling how many children were fathered by secret women on the side.

The ones I could find are the following:

Beheza Gnassingbe (Daughter)
She works at Import-Export Togo Food Company and Service Afrique International both in Lomé, Togo. She was originally from Pya, Lama-Kara, Togo.

Kpatcha Gnassingbe (Son)
Statistics
Born: September 6, 1970, Lome, Togo
Politician
In 2009 he was arrested by state security forces on charges that he was involved in a plot to overthrow his half-brother who is the current ruler of Togo. His wiki article is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kpatcha_Gnassingb%C3%A9
His possible Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/merry.dosse


He was found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison. There are some people who are saying that the bitterness between the two brothers stems from their childhood where Kpatcha would attempt to bully and intimidate the younger Faure.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-14935349
I am not sure what happened after he was sentenced but it seems he was released early or pardoned or something because he lists his position as working for the Togo government.

Essolizam Gnassingbe was another brother who was charged and tried in the coup plot but was acquitted of the charges and released.
