Scene of accident


In the afternoon of Sunday 25th of April, a journey of five almost turned fatal as their vehicle veered of the road at very sharp corner, rolling and falling to the bottom of a steep valley.

The accident occurred at Tuturung hills in Marakwet Sub-County, Elgeyo Marakwet County. The road which cuts across steep hills with dangerous corners, has witnessed several accidents as a result of vehicles veering of the road.

The five were returning to Nandi County after attending a church function at AIC Kapchebau in Marakwet during the launch of Gospel Song.

According to AIC Rev David Serem, who was among the passengers, the accident occurred as a result of brakes failure at the sharp corner leading to the vehicle losing control and rolling down the steep cliff.

Thanks to fate, the five survived the accident and were rushed to Kapsowar Mission Hospital to receive medical attention to determine extend of the injuries sustained.

JKLMEDIA wishes the victims quick recovery as they receive treatment. We also urge motorists to be careful while driving through the sharp corners.
