Details of How a Nairobi pastor mercilessly murdered his four-month pregnant girlfriend after disagreement has been revealed. He was found guilty and sentenced to death on Thursday by a Milimani High Court in Kenya.
Pastor Paul Ng’ang’a
According to a report by Kenyans, the Milimani High Court outlined how Pastor Paul Ng’ang’a of Wells of Faith Church in Kawangware ended the life of Caroline Chinjira, in a carefully planned murder.
Presiding Judge Jessie Lessit stated that evidence presented before him proved that Ng’ang’a killed the deceased with the help of his son James Mutua by strangling and hitting the deceased using a blunt object.
The brutal murder occurred along the Southern by-pass in Lang’ata as the televangelist, his son and the girlfriend were driving home on March 9, 2012.
The pastor’s son is said to have begun the assault by strangling Ms Chinjiri, who was on the co-driver’s seat, using a wire as his father drove at a slow pace.
As the struggle continued, Chinjira overpowered Mutua and managed to get out of the moving car before seeking help.
The court established that evidence against Ng’ang’a was enough to convict him since his clothes, the roof and the steering wheel of his car were found with blood stains.
Ng’ang’a and his son are said to have driven to Muthangari Police Station where they claimed that they had been carjacked. The court dismissed the pastor’s version of the incident.
Before she died in hospital, Chinjira told the police that she ran on foot to Ngong Road near Lenana School where she found a private security company car. Ms Chinjira was then rushed to the hospital but succumbed to her injuries.
“The autopsy report by the Government pathologist corroborated the witnesses’ accounts together with a dying declaration by the deceased that indeed Pastor Ng’ang’a played a key role in ending the life of Chinjira,” said Justice Lessit.
Family members of the deceased had earlier told the court that the pregnancy was a major source of conflict between the two. Pastor Paul Ng’ang’a was handed a death penalty by the court.
