Pastor Ng’ang’a to be charged after police seal gaps

More evidence implicating Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism Ministry in the fatal road crash which claimed the life of a woman has been gathered and he may face charges in court later this week.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Keriako Tobiko has said there is enough evidence to file a case against the preacher for “causing death through dangerous driving.”

He said more witnesses recorded statements with police officers “to close the gaps” earlier cited in the case file.

The team handling the file is expected to hand it to the DPP later Monday.

It was taken to the DPP last week but “some gaps” were identified.

A team investigating the case has since interrogated six more witnesses and filled the gaps, sources said.

It is now believed the controversial pastor was behind the wheel when the accident occurred and that he was at the scene.

Ms Mercy Njeri, 38, died in the accident while her husband Mr Martin Mbugua Ndung’u survived with multiple injuries.

Police have been on the spot for allegedly trying to “help” the pastor in an elaborate cover-up which entailed the doctoring of the initial report concerning the crash.

A man who was fronted as the driver of the Ranger Rover vehicle that rammed the couple’s saloon car will be charged with giving false information to the police.

Pastor Ng’ang’a has since publicly denied claims that he was the driving the killer Range Rover.
