Demonstrators demand justice for Pastor Ng’ang’a car crash victim

A group of activists on Friday staged a walk to the Supreme Court in Nairobi demanding justice for Mercy Njeri who was killed in a road accident involving city Pastor James Ng’ang’a’s Range Rover.

The peaceful protest first made its way to Pastor Ng’ang’a’s Neno Evangelism Church along Haile Selassie Avenue before proceeding to the Supreme Court at around 11:30am.

The dozens of activists had placards written #JusticeforMercyNjeri while chanting, “No Justice, No Maraga.”

Protesters accused the judiciary of failing to deliver justice citing the Monday ruling by Chief Magistrate Godfrey Oduor that acquitted the preacher.

Pastor Ng’ang’a was acquitted on the basis that the witnesses failed to prove that the preacher was driving the Range Rover when the crash happened.

The televangelist was charged three years ago with dangerous driving after his car crashed head-on into a Nissan March on July 26, 2015 at Manguo area in Limuru, killing Ms Mercy Njeri, who was a passenger in the Nissan.

Witnesses claimed Pastor Ng’ang’a was driving the Range Rover, but with the support of traffic police officers who attended the scene, he denied the reports.
