How Kenyan leaders, celebs mourned car crash victim, John Macharia
Kenyans leaders, media personalities and celebrities on Friday mourned the death of the son of Kenyan media mogul SK Macharia’s son, John Macharia, through a freak road accident.
The younger Macharia succumbed to injuries sustained in what the police have termed as a self-involved accident at 10pm on Thursday night along the Southern Bypass.
He was rushed to Karen Hospital where he died although a passenger he was travelling with survived the accident.
Photos of his mangled Porsche 911 Turbo S 2016 have since been widely shared on social media.
The same vehicle was involved in an accident along Waiyaki Way in November 2016.
On Twitter, Kenyans, including political leaders, condoled and commiserated with the family of SK Macharia for the loss of their son.
My sincere condolences to family and friends of S.K Macharia of Royal Media Services following sudden demise of his son John Macharia. As @CapitalFMKenya family our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow. May you find courage and grace to accept this unfortunate event. https://t.co/muYZ1ybHvE
