Mombasa-Nairobi Highway is one of the roads which are leading with the highest number of death records in our Country. Long vehicles which carry wide loads use that road, and many move at a supersonic speed.
This is one of the busy roads as goods from Mombasa port are carried in that area and some of them are being taken to the neighboring countries.
However, retailers are there looking for green pastures, but sometimes they business turns into a mournful Moment due to some mistakes they make everyday. Having travelled to some towns along that road, these people stand on the centre of the road selling their goods, and this might be very risky because Mombasa road is a one way traffic.
This evening, one family in Emali Town has been left mourning the death of their beloved one after he was knocked down by an oil tanker when he was selling his goods. According to the latest news by a Kamba radio station, this man was at the centre of the road when that lorry accidentally hit him.
Everybody now doing this should be warned, because it's risky and once a vehicle kills you, nobody can bring you back to life and your family members might be left being hopeless if you were the bread winner.
Police are now carrying out some investigations to arrest the driver, and this is after he ran away after killing this man.
