Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has revealed it was not Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’a who hit and killed a woman on the Limuru-Nakuru highway.

Boinnet named the rogue Range Rover driver as Simon Maina Kuria, who is now in police custody and face charges soon.

Kuria was driving the red Range Rover registration number KCD 060Q on Sunday evening in Manguo area where he collided with an oncoming salon car, killing a female passenger identified as Mercy Njeri.

Eyewitness account on Sunday revealed the driver of the Range Rover was driving on the wrong lane, pushing oncoming motorists out of the road.

According to Boinnet, the salon car was being driven by one Martin Ndung’u.

“The KBZ 709W was driven by Martin Mbugua Ndung’u and the Range Rover was driven by Simon Maina Kuria,” Mr Boinnet posted on his official Twitter page.

“The wife of the Nissan driver, who was a passenger, succumbed to injuries and passed on. The Range Rover was inspected, and later released.”

“The driver will appear in the Limuru Senior Magistrates Court. He is on Sh20, 000 cash bail,” said the IG.

Boinnet added the Range Rover was on a General Dealers (KG) licence with valid insurance and was on test drive when the accident occurred.

This was contrary to claims that the car involved belonged to Pastor Ng’ang’a.

Limuru residents claimed they had seen the apostle at the accident scene.
