BY EURIDICE NZIOKA,NAIROBI,22ND MAY 2018-Woes facing Pastor James Nganga of Neno Evangelism center seems to be far from over after Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji on Tuesday appealed the Limuru Chief Magistrate’s decision to acquit him and four others, for causing death through dangerous driving.
“The @ODPP_KE has today filed Criminal Appeal No. 34 of 2018 at the Kiambu High Court in relation to the acquittal of Apostle #Nganga and four others by a Limuru Magistrate’s Court. May 22, 2018,” read a tweet posted on the Office of Director of Public Prosecution’s handle.
The pastor was accused of driving his Range Rover dangerously in 2015, leading to the death of a woman on the Limuru-Naivasha Highway, charges he denied.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi had also requested the DPP to appeal the ruling, saying the evidence incriminating the pastor was overwhelming.
While making the ruling, Limuru Chief Magistrate Godfrey Oduor said that the prosecution did not produce sufficient evidence to sustain a conviction.
Pastor Ng’ang’a was acquitted alongside driver Simon Kuria and police officers Christopher Nzioka and Patrick Baya.
The move by the court to acquit him had caused public outcry with Kenyans saying justice had not been delivered.
