500 matatu drivers receive First Aid training in a move aimed at reducing road carnage

28 June 2016, 16:28 Mike Munga

Nairobi - 50 per cent of the total road crash deaths in Kenya are as a result of poor handling of the victims by good Samaritans who do not know first aid, a research by St. John Ambulance reveals.

This has triggered the formation of a road safety campaign dubbed 'Msamaria Mwema' which will educate the society on how to handle the victims.

The campaign has identified matatu drivers as the best candidates for quick response to emergency situations and selected 500 to receive first aid training in a move to reduce road carnage.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign, Automobile Association of Kenya President, Jenero Kibet said the AA Kenya in partnership with St. John Ambulance will roll out a six month pilot project in conjunction with Matatu Owners Association (MOA).

The campaign is funded by the International Federation of Automobiles and inspired by UN’s Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020.
