Televangelist James Maina Ng’ang’a, who is facing charges of causing death by dangerous driving, was involved in yet another road accident on Saturday evening.
The head of the Nairobi-based Neno Evangelism was subsequently held back by the crew of the matatu his BMW vehicle, had crashed into, damaging its flash lights.
According to an eye witness who did not wish to be named, the pastor, was allegedly trying to overlap as he joined the busy Southern bypass from Gitaru.
The pastor is understood to have agreed to repair the slightly damaged vehicle to avoid what was threatening to evolve into an ugly face-off with the resolute matatu operators and their impatient passengers.
Pastor Ng’ang’a subsequently left the scene and proceeded to Kikuyu police station where he reported the matter but did not record a statement “since the matter had been settled amicably”.
Kikuyu traffic police boss Rashid Koko confirmed the incident, saying it was a minor accident which did not warrant a statement being recorded. However, we reliably learnt that the traffic officer has since been directed to ensure the pastor records a statement today morning.
Ng’ang’a has a case at the Limuru law courts where he is charged with causing the death of Mercy Njeri through dangerous driving.
