Musician's woes deepen as real owner of Jaguar's killer Range Rover is found
Sinfonia Mugo and Joseph Maingi passed away suddenly at Rukanga shopping centre along the Sagana-Makutano highway when a Range Rover hit the boda-boda motorbike they were on in Kirinyaga County on Tuesday.
A woman was said to be driving the car before she quickly switched seats with Jaguar after the tragic accident with Jaguar insisting that he was the one on the wheel despite various eye witness reports begging to differ.
“Immediately the Range Rover hit the motorbike, there was a loud bang before the vehicle swerved off the road and later came to a halt. From the windscreen of the vehicle, I saw a lady on the wheel exchanging the seat with a man. After they did that, the man came out of the car from the right side while the lady did so from the left”. A worker repairing the road during the accident told The Nation.
Following this incidence, Kenyans on social media were enraged by the death of the two people but more enraged that Jaguar had in their eyes tried to cover-up the crime and had used his connections to deny justice from families’ victims.
“Jaguar, the alleged owner of the vehicle came around 3.30 and said he was the one driving the vehicle, even though the eye witnesses saw the lady driving it. The policemen from Rukanga police post alerted their counterparts from Sagana who towed the vehicle away. The lady plus Jaguar left for Sagana police station.
Later on, the parents to Mugo went to Sagana police station. They were denied the chance to see the vehicle that took away the life of their son. They were told to come with their eye witnesses. Today morning, Kamau, a brother to Maingi went to Sagana Police Station. He was denied a chance to see the vehicle too. He was told they haven't found the owner of the vehicle. What has changed from yesterday?” another account of the incident on Wanjiku Revolution reads.
Following the #ArrestJaguar hashtag the police have been forced to investigate the singer for causing death by reckless driving which is a serious offence and he could face 10 years in prison if found guilty.
Jaguar’s statement that he was the one driving the car or if he is the one who owns the car has been put into question after a certificate of ownership emerged online.
The car in question is registered under a woman Wamuyu Wanjiru Everlyne according to a search on on e-citizen.
Which begs so many questions like is the car he flaunted on social media his or is he just a poser? Or if it is his why is it registered under a different name? Was it a gift? Or why is he trying to take the fall for a crime he didn’t commit?
Only time will tell.
