sk1_0-1The son of Royal Media Services mogul S K Macharia, John Macharia was on Monday arraigned in court following an accident he caused on Saturday morning in Nairobi.

Mr Macaharia was charged for disobeying traffic police orders when he was directed to blow into a breathalyser.

It is believed Mr Macahria was under the influence when he rammed his expensive Porsche reg no: KCH 292K into another vehicle on Waiyaki Way.


Macharia, who did not appear in court, pleaded guilty to the charges through his lawyer, Ian Maina.

Maina told the court that: ”John is remorseful for his actions and did not know what was going on at the time. He has vowed not to repeat the offence”.

Senior Resident Magistrate Electra Rianyi slapped John with a Sh 25,000 fine.
