Road Accident

A KU Lecturer Has Been Awarded Sh6 Million In Compensation For His Wife's Death In A Car Accident.

A Machakos court has granted Ksh6 million in compensation to a Kenyatta University lecturer whose wife died in a road accident ten years ago.

Judge George Odunga of the Machakos High Court ordered Bash Hauliers Limited and a Ms Jeninan Munini, the wife of one Fred Kinyamasyo, to pay Dr Joshua Mulinge Itumo for the death of his wife Damaris Nduku in a judgement handed down on Wednesday.

Nduku was a deputy principal at St Kitulu High School at the time of her death.

The collision happened on Mombasa Road.

Kinyamasyo, who was also killed in the incident, was driving the automobile that killed Nduku.

Justice Odunga decided that the driver of a trailer owned by Bash Hauliers Limited, Faraj Said, and Kinyamasyo were both responsible for the accident that resulted in the death of the victim.

Kinyamasyo was found to be more at fault for the accident than the trailer driver, and the judge ordered his agent (Munini) to bear the greatest amount of the blame.

"The respondent vehicle’s driver, Faraj admitted that he didn’t make any attempt to avoid the accident. The admission makes him slightly liable for the accident,” ruled Justice Odunga.

After successfully appealing a verdict by Senior Principal Magistrate Evans Keago in October 2020, the lecturer was given Sh6 million.

Dr. Itumo was given Sh2,073,600 in compensation for the death of his wife by the magistrate.
