Pastor narrates receiving envelopes with tissues

Speaking to Lilian Migwi on Mwangwaza TV two years ago, the man of God narrated how they struggled to have kids for seven years after marriage.

"Some gifts we were given as envelopes did not have money. Five of them had tissue inside, and we just brushed it off. But after a few months, we started having wrangles in our family," he narrated.

Njogo said after prayers, he came to learn about spiritual witchcraft.

After intense praying, God blessed them with a child, a baby girl.

The story of the man of God resurfaced on TikTok, triggering netizens' emotions. A section of netizens flooded the post with heartbreaking stories about being bewitched in their marriages.
