The televangelist used offensive language on October 9, 2021 which was a breach of code conduct set by the body regarding taste and tone.
“The Council notes that the media house in question breached clauses 5 (b) (c) on Accountability and 10 (1) on Obscenity, Taste and Tone in Reporting by allowing a presenter, Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’a in a live broadcast from ‘Jerusalem City Kenya’ at 1024 hours where he uttered offensive and unprintable words on air,” reads parts of the memo by MCK CEO David Omwoyo.The council says that it will take action against SASA TV upon completion of the due process as per its guidelines, ordering the station to show cause why disciplinary action should not be taken against it.
“The Media Council of Kenya will take action against Sasa TV, after completion of due processes for breach of Code of Conduct for the Practice of journalism in Kenya,” stated Omwoyo.
A video went viral of the evangelist preaching at his church, Neno Evangelism Centre. Speaking on how morgue nurses should handle his body after death was when he made headlines in May 2019 for another controversy that caught fire with social media users alike!
MCK’s warning shot comes barely weeks after this pastor was let go under suspicious circumstances–and just days before trial where it would have cost him $1000/day if they didn’t settle out-of court
