The chairman of Sarova Hotels Mohinder Singh Vohra has died in a road crash that happened in Kiungwana, Makueni County, along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
His wife, sister and daughter-in-law also perished in the Sunday evening accident.
His grandson, the late JS Vohra’s son, sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to Nairobi for specialized treatment.
JS Vohra, son to MS Vohra, died last year in an accident on the same road. He was the MD of Sarova Hotels.
The late J.S. Vohra’s son, Saveer Vohra, was driving the family’s Toyota Prado at the time of the accident.
Eyewitnesses say the Prado was speeding when it veered off the road to avoid hitting an on-coming lorry, landing in a ditch.
The family was returning to Nairobi from J.S. Vohra’s memorial in Makindu.
