“Pastor Ng’ang’a” has been a top search on Google in Kenya after a video of the controversial church leader warning his congregants not to disrespect his wife has been widely shared.
Pastor James Maina Ng’ang’a, who is the head of the Neno Evangelism Centre, can be seen insulting and threatening members of his church.
In a mixture of English and Swahili he said:
“If you continue to disrespect my wife I will kick you out of my ministry, I don’t care who you are!
“I swear I will excommunicate you from this church… This time I will show you my power. If you don’t respect her, leave my church and go start your own. You are stupid and rubbish!”

It is not clear how his wife was disrespected.
This is not the first time Pastor Ng’ang’a has caused controversy.
In March, he was charged for allegedly threatening a journalist who had reported on the lack of transparency in the way that pastors deal with money.
He has not commented on the charges.
