Is this Kenya’s most expensive minor accident?

Munene told Nairobi News they did not know who John was at the time of the crash.

The lady, who was conscious, asked for a mobile phone so that she could call for help.

She called her mother, who sent an Uber that took them to hospital, Munene said.

John was the director and founder of Triple A Finance and Direct Line Assurance.

He was the heir apparent to SK Macharia’s estate that includes Royal Media Services, the owners of Citizen TV and radio, Inoor TV and radio and a host of other FM stations.
