, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 28 – The driver of a Range Rover involved in a fatal road accident with a saloon car in Limuru on Monday will be arraigned in court on Wednesday.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said on his Twitter account Simon Maina Kuria was behind the wheel of the top of the range vehicle when the accident occurred.
This is contrary to reports that a well known man of the cloth was behind the wheel of the Range Rover when the accident occurred, intoxicated and driving at high speed on the wrong side of the road.
It’s also alleged that he fled the scene of the accident.
The release of the Range Rover by police was met by outrage given Martin Mbugwa Ndungu lost his wife – the passenger – in the accident.
Some members of the public also wanted to know why the driver of the Range Rover was not in police custody.
In response Boinnet tweeted, “The Range Rover was inspected, and released. The driver will appear in the Limuru Senior Magistrates Court. He’s on 20K cash bail.”
Boinnet also refuted claims that the Range Rover was uninsured.
“The Range Rover was on General Dealers (KG) licence with valid insurance and was on test drive when the accident occurred,” Boinnet tweeted.
