Earlier today tragedy struck in Kikuyu after a Kisii bound 10 seater Transline Matatu was involved in a grisly accident that claimed the lives of all passengers on board.

Eyewitnesses reported that the Matatu was speeding along the narrow and winding road when it lost control, veered off the road, and rolled several times before coming to a stop. The impact of the accident was so severe that none of the ten passengers survived.

This accident is a stark reminder of the dangers of reckless driving on our roads. Despite numerous efforts by the government and other stakeholders to improve road safety, many drivers continue to flout traffic rules, endangering their lives and the lives of other road users.

It is imperative that drivers exercise caution and adhere to speed limits, especially on roads that are known to be dangerous.

The families and loved ones of the victims of this tragedy are undoubtedly devastated by the loss of their loved ones. It is a sad reminder of how quickly life can be taken away and how important it is to cherish the time we have with those we hold dear.

The government must take action to ensure that our roads are safe and that drivers who flout traffic rules are held accountable for their actions. This includes stricter enforcement of traffic laws, regular inspections of public transport vehicles, and the provision of adequate training and resources to law enforcement agencies tasked with ensuring road safety.

As Nyamira Daily News Our hearts go out to the families affected by the accident, and we pray that they find the strength to cope with this difficult time.
