Pastor Ng’ang’a’s killer Range Rover ‘was racing’

Fresh details have emerged on the circumstances under which a Range Rover belonging to Nairobi Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism Centre is alleged to have been involved in an accident that killed one person.

The details were posted by Stana Naserain on Facebook who claimed to have witnessed the events that led to the fatal accident.

She claims that there were two Range Rovers –black and red in colour- racing along the Nakuru-Naivasha road.


“The drivers were reckless and they kept shouting and shoving other motorists off the road,” she said.

“We attempted to tell the police just before the Kinungi market and they just ignored.”

Ms Naserian says the black SUV in fact made two motorists collide at the Kinungi market and sped off.

“The red Range Rover zoomed past us almost immediately after…this range Rover bore registration KCD060J (Not sure about the last letter),” she added. The registration was KCD060Q.

Ms Naserian says she encountered a huge snarl up while approaching Limuru only to discover that the red range Rover had crashed into the saloon car and threw if off the road.

She offered to testify in the case adding “the driver deserves to rot in jail!”


A separate Facebook post by a Rev James Maina shows that Pastor Ng’ang’a was in Naivasha opening a snazzy new hotel called Sunny Hill.

The pastor was on Monday on the spot over the road accident that involved his car and a private vehicle in which a woman was killed.

The pastor’s Range Rover Sports car was reportedly driving on the wrong side of the Nakuku-Nairobi highway on Sunday evening when the accident occurred.


The deceased, Mercy Njeri, was in the company of her husband Martin Mbugua when their vehicle collided head-on with the Pastor’s car.

The couple was heading to meet Mr Mbugua’s father, Peter Ndung’u, when the accident happened at around 5:30 pm at Maguo area along the busy highway.

According to eyewitness accounts, after the accident, the driver whom they claimed was Pastor Ng’ang’a, jumped out of the vehicle, locked it and got into another car that was behind and sped off.

However, the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett said the range Rover was driven by Simon Maina Kuria who has since been released on a Sh20,000 cash bail and is set to appear in the Limuru Senior magistrate’s court.
