Former Mwingi Central Member of Parliament Joe Mutambu and his driver got into a grisly accident that claimed the life of the latter. The two had gone to witness the tragedy that claimed more than 30 choir members who drowned in River Enziu.
Speaking to the media, Mutambu noted that his driver did not notice an oncoming truck that was being driven in the middle of the road. He added that the truck did not have its lights on and hence led to head on collision as his driver could not immediately identify the tractor because of its dim colour.
“Further, it did not have lights, hence our driver could not immediately identify the tractor because of its dim blue colour. We tried to avert the disaster but collided head-on with it. We rolled several times,” he stated.
Mutambu further added that he was lucky to escape with some injuries but was so saddened by the loss of his driver. He also noted that the driver of the tractor and his passenger also sustained numerous injuries, and were recuperating in the hospital.
