25 June 2015, 09:24 Arap Yego

Bungoma - A speeding car in the convoy of President Uhuru Kenyatta Wednesday knocked down a 74-year-old man in Lutonyi area along the Kakamega-Mumias road, killing him on the spot.

The man was a passenger on a boda boda when the incident happened, as the Head of State and his Deputy William Ruto and other leaders were on the way to Mumias Sugar Company.

His 24-year-old grandson who was riding the boda boda at the time was seriously injured in the incident and he is recuperating at a Kakamega hospital where he was rushed for medical attention.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was touring for the region for the first time since his election, presented KES 1 billion to bail out Mumias Sugar Company which was on the verge of collapse.
