The Amazing Grace radio station was banned last year after it broadcast a sermon that described women as “evil”.

Mr Schoof’ disputes this saying in a statement on Monday that the preacher on his station had used woman as a biblical metaphor for a church, so he said, the sermon was about “a bad church” not women.

His church was closed in February, among hundreds of others, for failing to comply with building regulations “and for noise pollution”.

In May, the preacher lost an appeal against the government’s media regulator to get his station to be reopened leading him to question the extent of freedom of expression in Rwanda.

In his Monday statement he accused the government of trying to send people to hell by closing churches, teaching evolution in school and promoting abortion.

Mr Schoof and his family have been living in Rwanda since 2003.

“I did not come here to fight the government. I came to preach the gospel. I care nothing about politics. Nor do I care who is president or what party is in power,” his statement said.
