Furious Pastor Ng'ang'a responds to EACC as government seek reclaim his church land

Pastor James Ng'ang'a absolves himself of the land-grabbing accusations made against him by EACC

Pastor James Ng’ang’a absolves himself of the land-grabbing accusations made against him by EACC.

This comes after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), the land on which the Neno Evangelism church founded by Ng’ang’a sits belongs to Kenya Railways.

The anti-graft body earmarked the particular tract among others to be reclaimed after supposed grabbing; Ng’ang’a’s church would thus be demolished.

However, playing down the claims, the controversial cleric explained that he acquired the piece of land legally.

Pastor Ng’ang’a said that the title deed to the land remained unchallenged for over four decades now.

He implied that he was not the first owner of the land, revealing that he acquired it in 2004, over 20 years after the original title deed was entered into the government’s lands directory.

Using unprintable words, an abrasive Ng’ang’a wondered why the previous regimes from the late Daniel Moi’s to Uhuru Kenyatta’s never went after him on allegations he had grabbed the land.

“They say I grabbed this land. The title deed was first acquired in 1980. I bought the land in 2004. They should ask the CBK. EACC should go to the Ministry of Lands to verify things,” said Ng’ang’a.

Contrary to the assertion that the land was fraudulently acquired from Kenya Railways, Ng’ang’a stated that he was sold the property by the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).

He said that before going for the land, he had verified the title deed was legitimate and thus proceeded to acquire it.

“I searched the title deed. It was out in 1980. It was during Moi’s time. It was still there during Kibaki’s time and later Uhuru’s. All that time, all the governments that have been there, where was the EACC?” posed the preacher.

This came days after another church was raided and part of it demolished over alleged land grabbing.

The church in question is Jesus Is Alive Ministries founded by Bishop Margaret Wanjiru.

Wanjiru, who is a former Nairobi County Senatorial, aspirant alleged that she and other members of her church were injured during the fracas and their phones snatched.

“We have been attacked severely today. I am injured on the arm and leg, and many of my people are bleeding. These individuals who attacked us today have been sent by Kenya Railways, and I want to state categorically that Weruga Lane does not belong to Railways. This is our property and investment. This is the property of the church and some of my other members,” said Wanjiru.
