City preacher, Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism Centre, is once again hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons after he allegedly caused an accident in Limuru while drunk and killed a motorist. According to eye witnesses, the preacher was driving his red range-rover, KCD 0600 Q, on the wrong side of the road when he had a head on collision with an oncoming saloon car which resulted in the fatal accident, killing the driver of the saloon car on the spot, before fleeing the scene leaving other people in the saloon car in pain.
There are however conflicting reports on the said accident with some sources alleging that Ng’ang’a’s car insurance sticker had expired, while other unconfirmed reports indicated that the car belonged to a car dealer and might not be the preacher’s car.
This is not the first time a man of the cloth is finding himself in controversial circumstances. Kenyans have taken to online to castigate the behaviors of priests accusing most of them of being extortionists, living a dishonest and hypocritical life at the expense of their congregation.A preliminary investigation into how police handled the accident case involving the televangelist has revealed the depth of the rot that has pervaded law enforcement in Kenya in the recent past. Departments of the Police Force, including the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and Traffic, colluded in staging an outrageous cover-up in a frightening indictment of law enforcement in Kenya.
Traffic officers who went to the scene had written that the Range Rover was being driven by Mr Simon Maina Kuria and the passenger was Inspector Nzilu, who is attached to the Police Airwing headquarters at Wilson Airport.
Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet was duped into supporting a cover-up after a car suspected to belong to televangelist James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism was involved in a fatal accident in Tigoni area of Kiambu nearly two weeks ago.
And it has now emerged that the pastor is illegally escorted by senior police officers during his trips outside Nairobi.
One such officer, an Inspector Christopher Nzuli Nzioka of the Kenya Police Airwing, was in the Range Rover involved in the accident where Mercy Njeri died and her husband was injured.
Ms Njeri was buried on Tuesday with politicians from Kiambu threatening to initiate the sacking of Mr Boinnet if he did not ensure the televangelist was punished.
