Robin was among participants of the Arusha 3 Drive, an event bringing automobile enthusiasts from Kenya and Tanzania for a racing contest along the Namanga – Arusha highway.
The accident occurred at near Longido township after two of the speeding cars collided and rammed off the road onto spectators who were watching.
Robin’s Mitsubishi colt was among the two vehicles that were involved in the accident that also killed several spectators while others were injured.
