Limuru family to appeal acquittal of Nairobi pastor in accident case

Clement Kamau

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.
