This past Saturday (December 7), Kenyans woke up to the news that a Mombasa motorist who was later identified as John Mutinda, drove his vehicle into the sea at the Likoni channel.
According to the Kenya Ferry Services (KFS), the incident occurred at 4:20 a.m adding that the man drove off at high speed without purchasing a ticket, almost hitting a their employee in the process.
A rescue mission was immediately started culminating in the body of the family man being retrieved mid-morning and the vehicle hours later.
Zipo has on Monday, December 9 come across a CCTV footage showing the moment the vehicle, a maroon Toyota Allion, which is believed to belong to Mr. Mutinda, plunged into the Indian Ocean.
The vehicle can be seen approaching the edge of ocean at a very high speed before crashing into the water. It floats for a few minutes before it quickly gets submerged into the dark ocean.
In the dark footage, only the head and rear lights are seen illuminating the water surface before it disappears.
Reports indicate that on that fateful morning, Mutinda left his home in a haste while dressed in his pajamas.
His wife Ruth Mueni told reporters that Mutinda told her that he had a dream in which he received a phone call from his late father who instructed him to drive to Mombasa CBD, where they would meet.
The now widowed lady was later informed by their pastor via a phone call that her husband had passed on.
