Rift Valley Institute of Science and Technology (RVIST) students led by their president have asked the Kenya National Highways Authority (Kenha) to modify the Sobea-Ngata stretch of the Nakuru-Eldoret highway so as to minimize accidents which have previously claimed lives of many people.
Their call comes as they continue mourning the death of three students who passed away in a grisly road accident.
The three students; Andrew Oyaro ( Mr RVIST), Kelvin Kariuki and Nickson Ameja died on the spot after the matatu they were travelling in was involved in an accident at the Nyata Bridge in Nakuru County.
The three victims were were among a group of 20 returning from an event that was held in Milimani, Nakuru town.
Three students including Miss RVIST alighted before the incident took place and only 17 students were in the matatu at the time of the accident.
The other 14 injured students were rushed to a local hospital where they received a medical attention and discharged.
