Neno Evangelism Pastor James Ng’ang’a, suffered a setback yesterday after the High Court declined to stop his prosecution over alleged Sh3.6m fraud.
Justice James Makau said the apostle has failed to demonstrate how his fundamental rights are being violated and failed to prove how the trial court will not grant him a fair hearing.
Ng’ang’a, who was later arraigned at the Magistrates Court, was released on cash bail of Sh5 million.
He has recently been accused of threatening a journalist over unfavourable coverage. Several years ago he was allegedly involved in a fatal accident. He was acquitted along with police for lack of evidence.
Ng’ang’a was released on police bond on Friday morning.
“He had agreed to pay but he has been delaying to honour that agreement. So we decided to process him and take him to court,” Central police commander Stanley Atavachi said.
Two weeks ago, Ng’ang’a was arrested and charged with threatening to kill journalist Linus Kaikai.
