Vihiga's Killer Bridge

Located along the Kisumu-Kakamega highway, just approximately one kilometer from Mbale town, is the River Ehedwe.

Barely three days after a traller veered and ran over a pickup that was ferrying students from a local school and three dying on the spot, and several badly injured, another accident happened yet again at the same spot.


Eye witnesses said that a traller that was ferrying sugarcane for the West Kenya Millers lost control and fall onto a cyclist heading to Mbale town, the same direction with the trailer.


This place has been a dark spot for quite sometime claiming lives of individuals, both drivers and the pedestrians. Across the Ehedwe bridge, an accident occured killing a cyclist just few days after that killing students on the spot had happened. The Ehedwe bridge located between Mbale and Majengo towns in Vihiga county has been mapped as a blackspot for many years making the residents being led by activists to demand the KeNHA to put bumps along the highway to no avail.

An accident killing the cyclist happens only two weeks after the accident in which the lory ferrying tomatoes lost control and rolling into a ditch in the same area
