The son of Inspector General of Police, Hillary Mutyambai, presented himself at Lang'ata police station on Friday night, December 3, after an accident that left two dead.
David Mwendwa presented himself to the police following claims on social media that cops were covering up the accident to exonerate the IG's son.
However, Nairobi Traffic Police Commander, Joshua Omukata, refuted the coverup claims and maintained that investigations will be conducted without putting into consideration who the suspect's relatives are.
Omukata further stated that medical investigations will also be conducted to establish whether Mwendwa was drunk or not after he allegedly hit and fatally injured two people on Thursday, December 2.The vehicle was involved in an accident along Nairobi Southern bypass on Thursday, December 2, 2021.Courtesy
"That he is the son of the Inspector General is not a fact to this matter. Even if he is the son of the IG or not the son of the IG the thing ahead of us is an accident.
"We are not investigating the son of who but we are investigating an accident in which we have the driver. It's about the person who has committed the accident not any other person," Omukata told the press.
The motorcyclist and his pillion passenger were fatally injured along Nairobi southern bypass in the accident.
Citizen TV reported that the suspect was whisked away from the scene of the accident alongside two female passengers.
According to reports, the wreckage of the car last seen at the scene of the accident nor a police report was available at Langata Police station on Friday a day after the accident was reported.
The family of bodaboda rider, Stephen Musyoka identified his body while the body of the pillion passenger was still at City Mortuary awaiting identification.
The accident highlighted the dangers that lurk on Kenyan roads which are also backed by data from the National Transport and Safety Authority.
In a report released last month, NTSA stated that more than 3,500 lives were lost on the roads between January and November. Out of the registered 3,564 deaths, pedestrians and motorcyclists were the most affected with 1,241 and 984 respectively.Medics from Londiani Hospital attend to victims of an accident at Fort Ternan on Monday, October 11, 2021.dead accident fatal death killed drunk suspect
