Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism was at the weekend again involved in an accident along the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway.
But the accident was a non-injury one. Police said he and a driver of a matatu that was involved in the accident sorted out the matter.
According to police and witnesses, the accident happened in Gitaru area on Saturday at about 6 pm. Both vehicles were driving to the Nairobi direction when the incident happened.
Police said Ng’ang’a’s BMWX6 car was hit from behind and had its light damaged. The matatu driver complained, Ng’ang’a had changed lanes without indicating hence he was on the wrong.
This was after he also realized his matatu’s right front light had been damaged.
Kiambu county police commander James Mugera said the two drivers-Ng’ang’a and the matatu one- sorted the issue at the scene.
“Because it was a non injury accident, Ng’ang’a agreed to pay the driver and both hugged and shook hands before leaving the scene. Police were not involved in the saga,” he said.
Mugera said the driver said the pastor had changed the lane without indicating.
He added when police learnt on the incident they called the matatu driver who said he had no complaint to make and that they had solved the matter with Ng’ang’a.
This was after he had been questioned at the Kikuyu police station where he went on his own.
We could not get a comment from Ng’ang’a as he was said to be busy.
In July, Ng’ang’a was involved in a fatal road accident in Limuru area before he tried to cover it up.
He was later arrested and charged in court with various counts.
The move by police followed a directive by the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko that he be charged with at least four charges including causing death by dangerous driving.
He was also charged with giving false information to a person employed in the Public Service, failing to report an accident as per the law and conspiracy to defeat justice.
Tobiko also ordered that two senior police officers based at Tigoni police station and police airwing Patrick Baya and Christopher Nzilu Nzioka respectively, be charged with conspiracy to defeat justice alongside Ng’ang’a and Simon Kuria.
This followed investigation and recommendations by police into an accident in which Ms Mercy Njeri, 38 died while her husband Martin Mbugua Ndung’u survived with injuries on July 26 at Manguo area in Limuru.
