Policemen bribed to change report on woman's death face the sack

30 July 2015, 18:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Policemen who took bribes to change a report in a road accident in which famous televangelist pastor Joel Ng'ang'a was reportedly involved will face the sack, Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett has said.

Boinett said in a statement Thursday that he had already begun internal investigations after Kenyans complained that the incident had been downplayed by officers after they were bribed.

Ng'ang'a was accused of smashing to death a woman in an accident involving his alleged Range Rover, which hit another vehicle, killing the woman and seriously injuring her husband.

Mercy Njeri died of her injuries after the Sunday accident in Limuru while Martin Mbugua her husband survived but with very serious injuries and is in hospital.

Ng'ang'a is the lead pastor of the Neno Evangelism Centre, one of the biggest churches in Nairobi and was said to have been in the Range Rover during the accident, according to eye witnesses.

He was allegedly rescued from the scene by his friends and later bribed police officers to have him released, according to reports.

" I have already dispatched two teams to investigate the incident and expect a report in the next 24 hours. If anyone is found guilty of bribery, they will face serious consequences including expulsion from the National Police Service," he said in a letter.

Boinett had been accused by the public of defending Ng'ang'a but said that he had no intention of doing so.

A man, a Moses Kuria has since been arraigned in court over the incident.

" A man named Simon Kuria was test-driving the vehicle, registration KCD 060Q, on behalf of Valley Road Motors, Boinett said through his Twitter handle Tuesday. The Range Rover was on General Dealers (KG) license with valid insurance and was on test-drive when the accident occurred," he said.

He also said that despite reports, the vehicle was insured.

" The Range Rover was inspected, and released. The driver will appear in the Limuru senior magistrates court. He is out on a KES 20,000 cash bail," he further explained.

The pastor has yet to comment on the matter officially.
