The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has recommended that controversial televangelist Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’a be charged on two counts over the fatal road accident in Naivasha.

In a statement sent to newsrooms on Tuesday, the DPP recommended that the pastor be charged with causing death by dangerous driving and giving false information to the authorities.

Two other suspected accomplices Martin Mbugua Ndung’u and Simon Kuria will also be charged alongside him with permiting a person to drive a motor vehicle on the road without a valid provisional driving licence and giving false information to the authorities respectively.

Tobiko’s statement comes after Kenyans raised concerns over how investigations into the matter were being conducted.

The file was originally handed over to the DPP on Monday August 10, 2015 and his office formed a team to investigate the matter.

The office of the DPP says it has so far interrogated six additional witnesses and recommends that six police officers who arrived at the scene of the accident and were allegedly compromised be disciplined.

Appearing on Citizen TV last week, the televangelist distanced himself from allegations that he was behind the fatal accident.
