James Maina Ng’ang’a Biography

James Maina Ng’ang’a is a pastor who heads Neno Evangelism Centre. He is a rock star kind of evangelist with a wide following and reputed for performing ‘miracles.’

James Maina Ng’ang’a  story is one of rags to riches. His lavish lifestyle as reported by Sunday Nation of January 21, 2007, belies a poverty-stricken childhood and several jail terms for theft and other misdemeanors. It is not clear, however, when he was in jail. He formed Neno Evangelism in 1992. In 2007, his manager, William Mburu, estimated that the church was worth Sh100 million. The church is sandwiched between two petrol stations along Haile Selassie Avenue. In 2012, a local radio station reported that a drunk Ng’ang’a got into a fight with his wife and security guard. His wife alleges in the court papers that he lives in Karen and owns a fleet of cars.

James Maina Ng’ang’a Family, Wife and Children – Pastor Ng’ang’a Wedding

James Maina Ng’ang’a  married Murugi after his first wife, with whom he had four children, passed on. The two tied the knot in a colourful ceremony at the Windsor Golf Club in 2012. The ceremony featured a full police escort, complete with outriders as part of his convoy. He had booked several kikuyu artists and Vitimbi crew. The wedding was attended by among others, the then Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka.

But things were not well in his marital paradise. James Maina Ng’ang’a estranged wife has decided to wash the family’s dirty linen in court, dismissing the man of cloth as an abusive and adulterous drunk. In a child support case filed on September 2 last year at the Milimani Children’s Court in Nairobi, Loise Murugi Maina accuses the flamboyant pastor of assaulting her physically and not providing for their child.

Murugi, who was seeking Sh535,000 monthly in child upkeep for their one-year-old daughter, claims she has no job to support herself and their daughter. She describes James Maina Ng’ang’a  as a man of means renowned for his lavish lifestyle and who would not have any problem coming up with the amount she is seeking.Nga’ng’a on the other hand accuses Murugi of deserting their matrimonial home without notice and denying him access to his daughter whom he fears will not be brought up “with proper moral values.”

The two were married on June 30, 2012. Murugi describes how life changed from paradise to hell:“In church, She took the position of an apostle’s wife, helping him with the service and managing church affairs. It is at this time that she started to experience a change in his attitude towards her. She claims that she was surprised when she found out who the real James Maina Ng’ang’a was.

James Maina Ng’ang’a was a drunkard and very abusive towards her, to the extent of insulting my parents. She also later learnt that he was adulterous, sleeping with staff and even bringing married women to our matrimonial bed,” Murugi claims in the court documents.

She took issue with the pastor’s alleged behaviour of texting and calling other women while in the house, which she claims caused her emotional pain. In addition, she alleges that whenever she confronted Ng’ang’a with her concerns, he would become very hostile and occasionally threaten her. She claims that the pastor would later try to calm her by apologising and blaming his behaviour and attitude on alcohol and the devil.

According to Murugi, the marriage nosedived when they were traveling to China for her sister’s graduation .James Maina Ng’ang’a allegedly started insulting her on the plane, and later on abandoned her and her mother at the airport.She alleges that Ng’ang’a later sent her a message bragging he had done shopping worth Sh3 million and that he did not care about the graduation. Five days after the graduation, Ng’ang’a reportedly called her to apologise for the ill treatment towards.
Murugi claims that one day, she found him drinking and they disagreed, resulting in a brawl.

She said that after the incident, she received a text message threatening her not to go back home.He  changed the door locks to deny me access into the house. She was forced to go back with their child to her mother’s house. Murugi adds that when they later met over the incident, Ng’ang’a reportedly got drunk and beat her. She claims that she left the house on August 3 and drove off with her then six months old daughter’s clothes in the family car. She then  surrendered the car to police officers who had been sent by Ng’ang’a to collect it.

But Murugi in her papers is of the view that James Maina Ng’ang’a is not competent to be granted custody.He is an abusive man, a drunkard and a man who lacks good moral grounding as he has no respect for any one, not even my own mother. He mistreats his children and even brings women to his house. This has resulted in his children being stressed and adopting a ‘don’t-care’ attitude that she would not wish for my child.
