Ministries of Road and Interior have launched a joint crackdown on rogue motorists flouting traffic laws during the festive season.

Addressing the media on Tuesday, December 20, CS Kipchumba Murkomen and his counterpart CS Kithure Kindiki said they prompted to initiate the crackdown owing to the spike in the number of road accidents.

The two CSs noted that in the last couple of days, the number of road carnages increased leading to the death of 58 people.

Among the offences targeted include; speeding, overloading, drink-driving.

CS Murkomen said that statistics obtained so far in December 2022 alone were worrying.

In their advisory, Murkomen and Kindiki asked motorists and pedestrians to exercise diligence and caution while on the roads especially during this festive season.
