The 17-year-old friend to his son is among the dead.
“It is very unfortunate we lost two people in the accident and two are admitted to hospital,” Savula told Capital FM News on telephone on Thursday morning.
His neighbour’s son and the driver of the Toyota Land Cruiser V8 are admitted to the MP Shah Hospital in critical condition.
The MP said he was called to the scene by a witness and police, with reports that his vehicle had rolled several times while speeding.
“I had just been dropped home at about midnight and my driver was going to drop my bodyguard in Embakasi. They went with the two boys, one who is my son’s friend and a neighbour’s son,” he said.
“Minutes later I was called that my vehicle has rolled while on high speed at Karen Shopping Centre.”
