Accidents on the Kenyan highways have been on the rise in the recent past with the government unsure of what to do to mitigate the scourge.
The accidents have sometimes caused serious traffic delays as well as loss of lives and that of property worth millions of shillings.
The government of Kenya, saw the expansion of Thika Road about a decade ago to ensure that traffic that was being witnessed would be eliminated.
This morning, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from the busy Thika Superhighway, there is a serious traffic jam from Kenyatta University to Roysambu.
Thousands of motorists are stuck between these two places this morning on the busy road as per the reports that we have with us from the area.
The cause of the traffic jam has been linked to an accident that happened last night between Githurai and Roysambu as per the reports that we have with us.
The accident that happened last night has not been cleared as the vehicles are still where the accident happened a few hours ago.
This has led to the huge gridlock that is being witnessed on the busy Thika Superhighway this morning as per the reports that we have with us.
Motorists plying the road have been advised to be extra careful as they approach this section and to be cautious as they get to this section of the road.
Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development that we have with us from the busy Thika Superhighway in the comments section below this article.
