Many lives have been taken on the roads over the past few months as per the data from the National Transport and Safety Authority.

Yesterday, reports emerged that veteran photojournalist William Oeri had lost his life in a nasty accident that happened as he was on his way to Kenol Town in Murang'a County.

The photojournalist's car collided head on with a tipper and immediately burst into flames and although members of the public managed to put the fire out, Oeri lost his life.

Oeri had worked for 15 years at Nation Media Group where he served as a Deputy Photo Editor before leaving and joining the People Daily where he worked until his demise.

A diary in which the journalist had recorded his New Year resolutions was among the many items that police recovered from the nasty accident scene.

In the diary, Oeri had jotted down a commitment as well as a prayer to help his daughter achieve all her education dreams this year.

The other unique prayer that he had penned down in the diary was that “my family heals as well as remain together in love”.

Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development in the comments section below this article.
