Motorists have been advised by the National Transport and Safety Authority to always be careful on the highways to avoid such scenes that lead to loss of lives.

This morning, we have received reports that a matatu that was full, collided with a truck used to transport sugarcane to the nearest factory in the area.

The matatu, is said to have been full to the brim when the collision occured earlier this morning in Nyanza, Kenya.

The road, is described as being narrow and this might have led to the collision that has claimed several lives.

Among the dead are three family members, that is, the father, daughter, and a mother who was heavily pregnant with the fourth child when the accident occured.

We extend our condolences to those affected by this tragedy only a few days after several people lost their lives in a matatu accident near Webuye.
