MP urges govt to identify accident black spots

13 October 2014, 12:27 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Bungoma County MP Dr. Reginalda Wanyonyi has asked the government to identify all black spots in major Kenyan roads to help curb road carnage that has killed and injured many Kenyans.

Dr. Wanyonyi said that despite the country experiencing many accidents, the government has not been ready to identify the blackspots and work on them to reduce road accidents.

Speaking at Mayanja Kibuke on Sunday during an interdenominational prayer day in commemoration of those who have since perished in road accidents, Wanyonyi called on the concerned authority to sensitize drivers on how to drive at an identified black spot.

“We have lost our beloved relatives because the government has not been keen in identifying dangerous areas and sensitizing the road users on the importance of driving slowly when approaching such areas,” said Wanyonyi.

The MP said that since the start of the year, 15 people had died along Bungoma-Malaba highway at Mayanja Kibuke with the latest incident claiming the life of Lwanja sub-chief, Chrisanthus Asusa who perished after a trailer hit his motorbike.

“Road safety should be the first priority before embarking on identifying all dangerous spots so that our drivers and the general public are aware of them to help stop the accidents,” she said.

During the service which brought together over 100 churches, the Bumula Sub-County pastors fellowship chairman Bishop Lazarus Matete said that they had resorted to prayer as a way of stopping road carnage.

“We have called upon God to intervene in stopping the road carnage that has claimed the lives of our people and it's time that the government came in and erected bumps to reduce over speeding which is the main cause of deaths on our highways,” said Matete.
