Langata Deputy OCPD John Sichei said the accident may have been as a result of drink driving as the man is said to have been moving from Weston Hotel.
In a press statement released on Monday morning, the William Ruto-owned hotel said that the driver only stopped over at the facility while appearing disturbed.
The hotel management went ahead to distance itself from the accident victim saying that he had no connection with them.
When the accident occurred, reports indicated that the deceased was Kelvin Rono, an aide to Deputy President William Ruto.
However, after further police investigations, it was later found that Kelvin was a victim of mistaken identity.
According to the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) records, the ill-fated car belonged David Kipruto Rono.
After the news of his death spread like fire in all media platforms, Kelvin took to social media to state that he was not involved in the accident.
He noted that rumours which emerged following the crash, claiming the accident was linked to the ongoing court case against ex-sports CS Rashid Echesa, were a threat to his life.
”In regards to that I would like to request the concerned authority to provide me with security since I am now living in fear in line with the alleged fraud,” he stated.
