Milimani Magistrate Daniel Ndugi has dismissed an application by City Pastor James Maina Ng’ang’a to bar media from covering Sh3.6 million fraud case.
In his ruling, Magistrate Ndugi indicated that the media had the right to pass information to the public responsibly hence he cannot bar them from doing their work.
“I cannot stop the media from doing their work,” Ndugi said.
The case dates back to 2016 where the City pastor is accused of obtaining Sh3.6 million from Wickson Njoroge Mwanthi by falsely pretending that he will lease him a residential premise in Karen Nairobi.
The incident happened at Neno Evangelism Church along Haille Selassie avenue.
