This is the second time in eight months that the celebrated singer is being involved in a road accident.

On March 22, a Range Rover Sport (KCB 808J) belonging to Jaguar, hit and killed two people – a motorcyclist and his pillion passenger – at Rukanga along the Sagana- Makutano road in Kirinyaga County.

At the time of the accident, Jaguar was in the car but there was speculation about whether it was he, or a lady in his company who was driving.

Jaguar has since appeared in court to answer to charges of causing the death of the two victims.
