The family of the woman who died in an accident allegedly caused by Nairobi pastor Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’a will appeal his acquittal.
Mercy Njeri’s family said it would first listen to the full ruling, which is expected to be read today by Senior Principal Magistrate Godfrey Oduor at Limuru law courts. The magistrate on Friday acquitted Ng’ang’a, of the Neno Evangelism Centre, his driver Simon Kuria and police officers Christopher Nzioka and Patrick Baya when he was ruling on whether they had a case to answer.
Njeri’s husband Martin Mbugua (pictured) said they have waited for one year for the ruling, but the date had been adjourned six times. Ng’ang’a was charged with reckless driving on August 26, 2015, resulting in the death of Njeri, after his car allegeldy collided head-on with her car, Nissan March registration number KBZ 709W, at Manguo area in Limuru constituency.
However, family lawyer Kariuki Wanjiri said they will study issues that led to the acquittal, so that they can appeal the ruling.
