Neno Evangelism Centre Bishop James Ng’ang’a has picked a fight with the Roots Party presidential candidate Professor George Wajackoyah over his plan to legalize marijuana when he gets elected as the fifth present of Kenya.
Ng’ang’a said that Prof. Wajackoyah’s agenda on bhang legalization and selling of hyena testicles in a bid to earn more revenues was against the country’s morals.
“You are saying that Kenya will grow bhang? May you be cursed and die before the end of your times, period. I also have a right to talk and I’m saying in the name of Jesus, you will not bring curses to Kenya by killing children with bhang”. he said
He continued by saying that legalizing the consumption of marijuana in Kenya was lawless and would damage morals among young people.
“Nimesema katika jina la yesu hamtaleta laana Kenya ya kuua watoto na bangi,”
“I have said in the name of the Lord, you will not bring curses to Kenya. Bhang will end up killing our children,” he said.
The controversial pastor was speaking during a sermon at his Neno Evangelism church along Uhuru Highway, he said Wajackoyah should be careful with his utterances and know some things are not acceptable in Kenya.
“I’m 69 years old and you are only 62 years old, you are my junior and I will attack you over your agenda. And when we meet, it’s either you knock off my teeth or I knock off yours,” he said.
He further criticized Wajackoyas policies and manifestos on selling hyenas testicles and introducing snake farming in Kenya to boost revenues.
“You clearly don’t care but we will show you how to care,” Ng’ang’a said.
He joins other lists of other pastors who have come out to castigate Wajackoyah’s manifesto. River of God Church Lead Pastor Rev. Tony Kiamah warned Wajackoyah that legalizing the product would have serious consequences, noting that he has experienced first-hand from growing up in Nairobi’s Eastlands area what marijuana can do.
“Wajakoyah has been moving a narrative that bangi or cannabis should be legalized. The damage that that narrative is doing is that young people now feel empowered to smoke weed, and now they are publicly smoking it on the streets. I need to remind you here young people that, weed is not a vegetable, and it destroys lives.
“Wajakoyah said with his own mouth that he has never smoked weed, but wants people’s children to smoke that drug; that if he’s elected, he will purify State House with weed that day,” he said.
