A gruesome road accident along Nakuru-Eldoret Highway has claimed the lives of more than 30 people and left 18 seriously injured. The accident occurred early in the morning involving a Nairobi bound bus and a truck headed in the opposite direction. Rift Valley Traffic Enforcement Officer Zero Arome said that the accident occurred at 3am and that the bus may have had faulty breaks. He added that the casualties have been removed from the scene and those injured rushed to Nakuru Level Five Hospital and Molo Sub-County Hospital. “We have 30 dead and two are from the truck. All the bodies have been removed from the wreckages and injured people taken to hospital.” Arome said. The accident occurred at Migaa, 10 kilometres from Salgaa where 12 people perished in another early morning accident last month and 3 kilometres from the scene of another accident that claimed 20 lives on 12th December. The latest accident at Migaa brings the number of lives lost through road carnages in December 2017 to over 250 with over 100 lost on the Salgaa stretch alone. Local leaders, celebrities and the public alike took to social media to condemn road accidents and call for action to make our roads safe: Starehe MP Charles Njagua -Jaguar My prayers and sincere condolences to the families relatives and friends of the victims caught in the tragic Migaa accident. We strongly need to emphasize on road safety. Travel safe. Embakasi East MP Babu Owino My prayers and heartfelt condolences goes to the families,close friends and relatives of the victims of Migaa road accident may their souls rest in peace. For those who are hurt my family wishes you the quickest recovery. God is in control. ODM's Director of Communication Philip Etale RIP to our brothers and sisters who lost their lives in the road accident at Migaa area on the Eldoret/Nairobi highway. May God Rest your Souls in Peace. Very sad for our Nation. Lord have Mercy on your people. Drivers must not overspeed. They should avoid excess passengers. pic.twitter.com/wGABGN8g2v Musician and media personality Sheila Mwanyiga Sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones at #Migaa The year shouldn’t have ended this way.
