Celebrated Kenyan singer Charles Njagua Kanyi, popularly known as Jaguar, who is running for a parliamentary seat to represent Starehe constituency, has raised dust on social media after knocking two people riding on a motorcycle dead.

After a viral social media post alleging that Jaguar’s vehicle, a state-of-the-art Range Rover, had hit and killed two young men, the singer has come out to clear the air.

Jaguar took to his social media accounts to admit that some of the allegations were true.

“It is with grief that I share this post today. As it is now public, I was involved in a car accident. Sadly, lives were lost in the incident,” he said.

However, according to the anonymous tipster quoted by Kenyan media, a woman was driving Jaguar’s car and not the singer himself. The post alleges that the woman who was driving did not wait for her lane to be cleared due to construction and that in the process of bypassing the other cars, hit the oncoming bike. The two young men allegedly died on the spot.

“It isn’t any one’s will to wake up and be involved in an accident such as this. My heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of those affected. I would like to assure all concerned that due process of the law is being followed to amicably resolve this. I pray God grant strength to the families affected as we all go through this trying moment. Lastly, lets avoid confrontational remarks in consideration to the pain it is causing the bereaved families,” he writes.

Jaguar is popularly known in Uganda for his hits ‘Kigeugeu’ and ‘One Centimeter’. He also made headlines in Uganda when he bought a private jet.
