Pastor Ng'ang'a lawyer quits

26 August 2015, 13:57 William Korir

Nairobi - Pastor James Ng'ang'a's lawyer Cliff Ombeta has quit the case involving the controversial preacher.

It was announced Wednesday that Ombeta would no longer be representing Ng'ang'a and that the honour would go to Assa Nyakundi.

Ombeta said that he was withdrawing from the case due to the apparent lack of direction in the case.

Ng'ang'a is accused of causing the death of a woman, Mercy Njeri in Limuru through dangerous driving and also misleading police on his whereabouts as well as obstructing justice by trying to bribe policemen into letting the case slide.

Ombeta is one of Kenya's best known criminal lawyers.

On the other hand, the court on Wednesday declined to compel Pastor James Ng’ang’a to submit his DNA for sampling as requested by the prosecution to beef up their case.

Magistrate Timothy ole Tanchu sitting in Limuru said that compelling Ng’ang’a to submit blood samples would make the court cease being an impartial arbitrator.

Tanchu pointed out that police should have been satisfied they had sufficient evidence before they produced him in court.

He noted that compelling Ng’ang’a to give his blood samples would be assisting the prosecution in its case.

Ng'ang'a is accused together with three others.
