Renown actor Davis Mwabili popularly known as Inspekta Mwala, on Friday, apologized for reportedly killing a pedestrian, Samuel Mwaki in Kaloleni, Kilifi County.
On Tuesday, August 27, Mwabili is said to have been driving a Toyota Axio car on Mazeras Highway when he knocked down the 35-year-old man, who was crossing the road, killing him on the spot.
Taking to Twitter, the Citizen TV actor apologized to the late Mwaki's family in a rather lacklustre manner.
He asserted that he was not a killer and if that was the case, then he would have easily joined the armed militia group, al-Shabaab.
The actor-cum-radio presenter added that Kenyans should stop creating a whole hullaballoo over the matter but instead focus on more important issues affecting the country.
"I'm sorry for what happened and pole (sorry) to the family.If I am a killer, then I would have joined al-Shabaab. My point is...lets be constructive guys. Some of our people are dying of hunger and you haven't given it much attention as you have given this one. Lets sit down and think," his tweet read.
The father of the late Mwaki, Alex Mangi Yaa, on Thursday, revealed that he was in the process of looking for a lawyer who will help him put together a case against the radio presenter.
He further disclosed that ever since the accident occurred, Mwabili has never reached out to his family.
“We are now looking for a lawyer to represent us in court. Sadly, Mwala is yet to communicate with us despite killing our son, who has left behind a young wife and a child,” he lamented.
Mwabili was arrested shortly after the incident and taken to Rabai Police Station, where he spent the night before being released on Tuesday, on a Ksh 40,000 cash bail. He is expected to be arraigned in court on Friday, August 30.
