RIP: Pain as Two Siblings Were Burried in Murang'a

It was an emotional day as two siblings Ian Mwangi aged 11yrs who was a Grade 6 pupil and Precious Nyambura aged 8yrs (Grade 3 pupil) were laid to rest at Kanjiruini village, Maragua, Murang'a county.

The two died in a tragic road accident last friday along Thika Kandara road near Delveiw on their way home from Makongo Primary school. They were knocked by a speeding nissan which was avoiding bumps.

Their father John Kamande who is a well known businessman who operates a Kinyozi business in Thika was waiting for them in the evening as usual so that they could head to their home in Witeithie together when he got the tragic news.


Sadly, their elder brother died in similar circumstances last year. The family has now been left with one child.

The bodies of the two had been preserved at General Kago funeral home in Thika where they were taken by family members and friends today morning ahead of the burial.

Kiambu county women representative Ann Wamuratha attended the burial to condole the family.

She said that it is so painful for parents to lose their children in such circumstances. 

She called on to road safety to take action against drunk driving and recklessness on the roads and also commited to follow up for justice for the family.

"Heartache is so painful especially to parents who see off their children in such circumstances. The young children met their death through road accident where the elder son Ian was trying to save the sister from the reckless driver." She wrote while sharing photos of the emotional send off.

May God comfort the family and grant Ian and precious eternal rest.
