Nairobi - Four members of President Uhuru Kenyatta died in a grisly road accident while on their way to prepare for the President's visit.
The four members of the GSU Recce squad died on the spot Tuesday evening after their vehicle rolled severally along the Isiolo- Marsabit Highway.
According to sources at GSU headquarters, the four died after their vehicle lost control after a tire burst and died on the spot.
They were heading to Lonyangalani to carry out security surveillance ahead of Uhuru’s visit to commission a wind power project.
" They died on the spot sadly. The vehicle was extensively damaged and they did not have safety belts on and so were killed on impact," the source told News24.
The president will be in the region Thursday.
