Makaka, who worked at Royal Media Services' as the Business Manager in charge of Hot 96, is said to have rammed a trailer on Mombasa road.
"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on of our colleague Allan Makaka, Business Manager in the Commercial department through a tragic road accident," the company said on Saturday morning in a memo to staff.
The accident occurred on Mombasa Road, a highway listed on a recent report by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) as having accounted for a high number of accidents since January.
NTSA however, says there were fewer accidents nationally since January as compared to last year, in what is attributed to stringent measures to contain COVID-19, including the dusk to dawn curfew because most accidents occur at night.
In the same period under review, some 2,151 people sustained serious injuries compared to 1,844 in 2019 while 1,636 were slightly injured since January compared to 1,363 last year.
