Nairobi - Embattled Neno Evangelism Centre Bishop, James Ng’ang’a has denied claims that he was involved in an accident that killed a woman in Tigoni.
Ng’ang’a said he is ready to defend himself in court if the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) approves the recommendation by the police to charge him for causing death though dangerous driving.
“The car that was involved in the accident is not mine. You can check with the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to find out who owns it,” Ng’ang’a said in an interview on a local TV station on Monday night.
According to the televangelist, the said car was being driven by one of the people who had attended a church event he hosted in Naivasha.
He said the claims that he was driving the car at the time of the accident had been propagated by the media, to kill his ministry.

“I have never been given a chance by the media to say what happened. They want to put me down, but they won’t succeed because God is in control,” he said.
He claimed that he only heard of the accident though the media.
“I was I my house when I heard that an accident had happened. Those saying they saw me should come to court and give their evidence,” Ng’an’ga said.
He also refuted claims that he was at Tigoni Police Station to interfere with evidence, and that he was never treated at Karen Hospital after the accident.
Inspector General Joseph Boinett recommended the prosecution of Ng’ang’a in a report he submitted to the DPP on Monday.
His fate now lies in the hands of the DPP.
