Pastor Ng’ang’a to be charged over fatal Limuru crash – Tobiko
Pastor James Ng’ang’a will be charged with conspiracy to defeat justice following a fatal crash in Limuru, DPP Keriako Tobiko has said.
In a statement on Monday, Tobiko said Ng’ang’a has a case to answer over the accident on July 26,following a review of the evidence by the prosecution.
Tobiko further recommended the prosecution of Christopher Nzioka and Patrick Baya, police officers accused of falsifying information and neglecting official duty.
The two served as Ng’ang’a’s bodyguards without being officially assigned to him.
Investigations by a team led by Traffic Commandant Charlton Muriithi established that the two were with Ng’ang’a on the day of the accident despite initially denying involvement.
Simon Kuria, who was presented as the driver of the Range Rover, is in court over giving police wrong information.
Tobiko said the four are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty as guaranteed by law.
Following the emergence of the alleged cover-up by police, Ng’ang’a has blamed the media for maligning his name and asked his congregation to pray for him.
IG Joseph Boinnet ordered a fresh round of investigations into the accident after witness accounts contradicted an initial police report from Tigoni police station where the accident was reported.
