Nairobi - Pastor James Ng'ang'a will spend Thursday night in a police cell as he awaits a bail hearing to decide whether he can be released pending the hearing of his dangerous driving case.
Ng'ang'a was arraigned in a Limuru court Thursday, where he appeared before Limuru Senior Resident Magistrate Timothy ole Tanchu to answer to several charges.
The preacher denied the charge of causing the death of Mercy Njeri on July 26 in Manguo in Limuru, Kiambu County through dangerous driving. He also denied charges of attempting to defeat justice and giving false information to police officers.
He was also charged alongside Simon Kuria who denied giving false information to the police and Inspector Christopher Nzioka who rebutted claims he neglected his duties, as was another officer, Patrick Baya who also denied charges of neglecting his duties.
Kuria was accused of trying to admit to having been the driver behind the wheel in the accident, while the others were said to have tried to help Ng'ang'a escape.
