Stanley Mwaniki, a pastor at the ACK church Kibugu, attacked his estranged wife Ann Ngira with kicks and brows injuring her near the church last Sunday.

He allegedly committed the crime in front of other clergy and congregations during a baptism service.

Embu Police boss Mark Wanjala said the woman who separated with the pastor in 2016 had attended the baptism of their son at the church.

Wanjala said that Ngira reported the matter and was issued with a P3 form.

The pastor is being held at Manyatta police station waiting to be arraigned.
