It seems that Kenyans have not learned a lesson when it comes to stealing fuel from tankers that have been involved in accidents.
In a recent report that was shared by a reliable source, a group of locals along the Garissa Mwingi road have been seen siphoning fuel from an overturned tanker.
Despite the misfortune, the locals seem to be enjoying what they're doing without caring about the risks involved.
Even though cases of fuel tankers overturning are not common in Kenya locals are always advised to stay away from the trucks as the results may be catastrophic.
Unlike any other goods fuel is a delicate product that requires only a spark to create a lot of damage. Even though it is not clear what might have led to the accident, security personnel have been urged to visit the site to try and stop Kenyans from risking their lives in the name of free fuel.
One of the most unforgettable accidents that involved a truck occurred a few years back in Siaya county which left a lot of families in agony.
Before you decide to risk your life, it is important to remember that people only live once.
