Residents barricade road after speeding matatu killed boy

01 December 2015, 10:34 Obare Nyamota

Nakuru - Angry residents of Kinungi trading centre in Mau summit division on Monday barricaded the Nakuru-Kericho highway with stones, paralyzing transportation following the death of a 10-year-old boy who was killed by a speeding Nissan matatu.

The irate mob abandoned their normal routine and descended on the highway where they spent the better part of the evening in protest.

They said more than six people have been killed by speeding vehicles and scores injured since the start of the year.

The residents want the government to erect bumps and road signs at Kinungi trading centre as a way of reducing road accidents.
