A Nairobi pastor has been found guilty of killing his four months pregnant girlfriend.
He will be sentenced on Monday.
The murder happened in 2012 at Nairobi’s Dagoretti area.
While delivering her judgment, justice Jessie Lessit said that investigations as well as accounts from key witnesses and a dying declaration by the deceased had proved beyond reasonable doubt that Pastor Paul Ng’ang’a Wanjiru of wells of Faith Church in Kawangware indeed killed Ms Caroline Chinjira.
Before she met her death Chinjira was working with Panafric hotel.
Pastor Ng’ang’a was arrested together with his son but the son was cleared by the court.
The court found that all the evidence adduced linked the murder to the televangelist.
His clothes were found to have blood all over as well as the roof and the steering wheel of his car at the scene of incident.
An autopsy report by a government pathologist corroborated the witnesses account together with a dying declaration by the deceased that indeed Pastor Ng’ang’a played a key role in ending the life of the late Chinjira along the southern by-pass in Lang’ata Area on Friday night.
The court established that the deceased was hit with a blunt object(s) and was also strangled by an electric cable.
The “man of God” had an intention of either inflicting injuries or causing death to the deceased according to Justice Lessit.
Pastor Ng’ang’a and his son James Mutua then drove to Muthangari Police station where they claimed that they had been carjacked.
The High Court dismissed that statement as lies.
According to family members of the deceased, their kins pregnancy was a source of conflict.
She also had another son with the pastor.
She died at Kenyatta National Hospital while undergoing treatment after the incident.
