Lobby group calls for fresh vetting of drivers to curb road carnage

05 July 2016, 11:06 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi -  A lobby group has called for fresh vetting of all public and private drivers in order to improve road safety in the country and curb road carnage.

The Road Safety Association of Kenya (RSAK) claims that most drivers were incompetent and  not licensed to drive on Kenyan roads.

Speaking at Mutithi market in Kirinyaga where four students and a driver died in a road accident last week, the association chairman David Njoroge said the number of road crashes in the country this year is alarming.

He said the number could surpass 3,000 people each year.

He said even drivers of private vehicles have become reckless and are causing accidents at an alarming rate.

He added that most of them engage in drunk driving and called for the use of alcoblow both during the day and night to nab them.

“The country is leading in terms of road carnage in Africa. While other countries have tried to tame accidents, Kenyans think road carnage is normal. People lose lives and it ends there. Everything lies with our drivers and that is why they should all be vetted afresh and Saccos strengthened to regulate them,” said Kiarie.

About 11 people have lost their lives in the last one week at the 30-kilometre stretch from Samson Corner to Mutithi past Mwea on Embu-Nairobi Highway.
