Seven die in Kwale road accident as locals block LungaLunga -Likoni high way for hours

26 June 2016, 14:40

Kwale - Angry residents on Saturday blocked the busy Likoni -Lunga Lunga highway at Kanana, Kwale County after seven people, including four pupils died in a road accident on Friday evening.

The accident happened when a matatu ferrying pupils from a trip in Shimoni caves to Kisauni collided with a lorry.

Shimoni OCS Abdullah Tato said the matatu driver cross the road at a junction without checking for oncoming vehicles and collided with the lorry carrying Mangos.

“The driver crossed the road at a junction in Kanana area without checking before he lost control and knocked down the woman and her two children on the roadside”, Tato said.

Several other people were seriously injured and rushed to Msambweni referral hospital for treatment.

Irate residents and boda-boda riders who operate at the junction landed on the matatu driver with kicks and blows accusing him of causing the accident before police rescued him.

The residents on Saturday blocked the busy road demanding bumps to be erected describing the area as a black spot.

Lunga Lunga Sub County Administrator Edward Chibu promised locals that bumps will be erected on Monday.

"Similar demonstrations were witnessed a few days ago at Mwabungo area in Msambweni Sub County after a lorry knocked a bodaboda operator", he said.

Kwale county women representative Zainab Chizuga visited the scene and assured locals that she will push the authority to ensure bumps are erected at the area.

Chizuga blamed national transport authority for failing to erect bumps in area regarded as hot spot to reduce such accidents.

Governor Salim Mvurya also visited the scene and condoled with residents.

Mvurya said his administration will not sit and watch as residents continue dying along the roads through accidents caused by careless drivers.

“All areas regarded as hotspots must have bumps erected,” he noted.
