Businessman who killed guard in estate accident released on bail

04 February 2016, 20:48

Nairobi - Businessman and Cooper Motors Company CMC director Joel Kibe has denied charges related to an accident in which a guard died and has been released on a KES 300,000 bond.

The Star reports that Kibe lost control of his Range Rover, registration KBQ 959J, and rammed into a security barrier in Runda Estate on Monday killing a guard and injuring another.

He was charged on Thursday with causing death by dangerous driving, being under the influence of alcohol and driving carelessly thereby causing injury.

Kibe appeared before city magistrate Benson Nzakyo at the Milimani law courts. He skipped court on Wednesday, his lawyer Cliff Ombeta saying he was nursing injuries following the accident.

Ombeta further said that Kibe has diabetes and that his blood sugar level had risen.

According to Capital News, Security guard Charles Wachira, 25, who died at the scene of the accident in Nairobi's Runda estate, had flagged Kibe down for checking.

The director swept away a one-foot radius bollard, brought down three smaller ones and knocked down a sentry box.

A witness said the thick bollard was pushed 10 metres from its point and rolled over the dead guard before the car ran over him.
