Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism church is a man in love. The controversial pastor recently explained why he settled for Mercy Murugi, his younger wife who has also been a trending topic like him.
In an interview with Radio Jambo’s Massawe Japanni, Ng’ang’a said he settled for her after his first wife died.
“When my first wife died, I was forced to make a very critical decision of getting married again. I married young Mercy, she is a daughter to one of my church members. By the time I knew her, she was in university, and that is one thing that attracted me to her as I did not go to school myself,” said the pastor.
He went on to add many women wanted him but he chose her because he also didn’t want an old person. Ng’ang’a and Mercy got married in 2012.
“I wouldn’t have looked for an old person whose ‘mileage’ would not last long. There were thousands of women who wanted me to marry them, hence the disagreement between me and the church. But I made my final decision and settled for her,” he added.
The city pastor explained why he ranted in the church regarding other pastors disrespecting his wife.
“Akiitana mkutano hao pastors wakubwa wanasema hawawezi kukuja mkutano wa watoto. Ni mke mdogo lakini ni lazima apewe respect. Ni madharau. As a person, I was speaking to my congregation. It started three years ago but it reached a point I had to speak out,” he said.
