A Kenyan man of God identified as Evangelist Bishop Ng’ang’a has for the first time spoken on his stunning wife and why he chose to go for a much younger spouse, amid controversy.
The controversial pastor has in recent weeks been a hot topic of discussion, mainly because of his sensational outbursts.
In one of his rants back in May, an animated Ng’ang’a accused members of his church of utter disrespect as he claimed they were thirsting over his wife.
“If you are not going to respect my wife, I will kick you out of my ministry whoever you are. I don't care if we grew up together,” Ng’ang’a said in the video, which went viral on May 30.
Ng'ang'a went on to threaten action any member of his church who he felt was a liability or was exhibiting signs of disrespect.
Not only is his new wife stunning, but she is also fairly youthful compared to the pastor, who is en-route to senior citizenship at 66 years old.
He appeared on a popular radio station on Wednesday, August 14, where he shed more light on why he opted to go for a lady who was significantly younger than he was.
Speaking to Radio Jambo, Ng’ang’a revealed that he started courting his wife, Apostle Loise Murugi Maina, while she was still a student at the University of Nairobi.
He also revealed that at first, he was sceptical because of public opinion and was actually considering marrying from his own age group.
Eventually, he settled for Murugi for the simple fact that she was “fresher” than other ladies.
To use his own words, the pastor said that he wanted a younger lady because the other ones had “more mileage”.
"When I get old, she will take care of me. Where will I go with an older lady? I wanted to marry other women, among them politicians, but then I looked at their mileage and decided not to because we would age together,” he said.
The pastor also spoke on how they met as he revealed Loise's mother was a member of his church and he eventually spotted the lady who would go on to be his wife through the mom.
He married Murugi after the death of his first wife, with whom he had sired four children.
