Family escapes death while hurrying to mortuary

By Benson Maranga
A family was involved in a car accident on Saturday after their vehicle rolled several times. The accident happened in the morning hours a few metres from Gatero Girls High School, 35km from Nyahururu town. Eye witnesses reported that the vehicle which was at a high speed was trying to avoid bumps on the road when the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled.

The family in their private car was hurrying to Nyahururu District Hospital Mortuary to view the body of their deceased when the accident occurred. 
Nobody sustained serious injuries in the incident.

The road between Kinamba and Nyahururu is laced with bumps. It is reported that the area is prone to accidents and this inspired the erection of bumps. Public service vehicles occasionally try to avoid the bumps which are too high and concentrated.

Vehicles plying the route are known to over speed. They also carry excess passengers. This is done at the full watch of the traffic police. It is also an open secret that the police receive bribes in the area. They do it at the full watch of the passengers. Residents are appealing to the Inspector General David Kimaiyo to act with speed to ensure that reforms in the police force trickle down to the grass root level.
