Sad reports reaching our desk confirm that media mogul S.K. Macharia (owner of Royal Media Services) has lost his son John Macharia to a horrific road accident.
The accident happened along Southern Bypass last night. He was rushed to Karen Hospital but unfortunately succumbed to the injuries he sustained.
According to eyewitnesses, John was driving way over the limit when he crashed.
An alleged photo of the wrecked car’s speedometer indicates that he was doing over 200km/h at the moment of impact.
The flamboyant John is no stranger to traffic incidences. Sometime back, he was arrested for drunk driving when he smashed his brand new Porsche 911 Turbo S 2016 into the back of a vehicle in front of his.
In events leading to the arrest, he was involved in a scuffle with a traffic police officer, refusing to blow into a breathalyzer. The matter ended up in court.
He paid a fine and was let go after his lawyer argued that he was sorry for his actions.
John Macharia was a successful businessman in his own stead, founding Triple A Finance and Direct Line Assurance.
