‘TOTAL DISREGARD FOR PEOLPE’S LIVES’  

Her Twitter post was accompanied by a video of Macheru looking “disoriented” and stated that he has no regard for people’s lives.

She also states that Macheru was not “cooperating with her insurer” and had to pay for the damages he caused.  

Her insurance company also informed her that Macheru didn’t insure his new car.   

She shared videos of the accident scene with her damaged Mazda and Macheru’s damaged car and also revealed that she was travelling with her six-month-old twins but luckily, didn’t get injured.

“@eric_macheru drinks and drives with total disregard for people’s lives and thinks being a ‘celebrity’ means suffering no consequences!!!”

“The most damaged car was his uninsured Audi.”   

The black Mazda is my car. He reversed into it and to this day, still refuses to cooperate with my insurance as they try to recover the amount I paid for excess and how much the insurer spent fixing my car. The most damaged car was his uninsured Audi. pic.twitter.com/7N5I6KiHRT

If you are still trying to fight for what you’re owed, his IG is very active. Contact him there or post these and tag him for further public exposure. Let him know that you want EVERYONE to know what he did.
