Pastor Ng’ang’a has made headlines for his controversial statement about poverty and Christianity.
In a clip that has caused a stir on the internet, The well-known preacher tells his congregants that he does not live in the slums like them, He continues to say that it is an advantage because it is easier for them to spread the gospel as they interact more with each other compared to the rich who barely interact with each other.
“I don’t live in Kawangware like you… I don’t live in Mathare but at least you live in Mathare where you can talk to your immediate neighbours.
“Where I live, you can’t even talk to your neighbour, we just wave hi to each other. But you can meet your neighbour at the kiosk which sells mutura and catch up over stories.
“Where I live, you can’t converse with anyone. You can’t stop someone to preach the gospel to them,” Pastor Ng’ang’a said.
Some people interpreted the message to mean that rich people have no time to waste hence it is harder to spread the gospel to the rich rather than the poor.
