5 Dead, Several Injured After Matatu Rolls As Result Of Tyre Burst

Our roads still continue to claims more lives as time goes by. No single day can pass without an accident or emergency being reported on our roads. Most deaths occurs as a result of reckless driving by our own drivers.

A total of five people today, have been confirmed dead today after matatu they were travelling in rolled several times as a result of tyre bust. According to reports by Royal Media station, the accident occured in Londiani along Kericho- Nakuru highway. More sources from police indicates that the bodies of the deceased have been transported to the morgue while the injured taken to different hospitals in the country where they are currently receiving treatment.

The accident comes a week after the country lost its leader, Nominated Senator Victor Prengei who perished in the same manner. Jubilee party secretary general also escaped with injuries when his car collides head on with a matatu along Nakuru- Nairobi highway.

This now put the government to task to try and come out with a possible solution that will end the mess. Currently the government through the Kenya National Highway Authority (KNHA) are in the process of duelling the Salga stretch which for decades have been the major black spot in the country.

To add on the government's effort, the drivers are urged to drive carefully by observing roads signs that can help avoid such accident cases.
