In a tweet, the journalist who is currently in hospital narrated that his car rolled three times after he got hit by another vehicle on the side.

Seat Belt Came to my Rescue

Ian Wafula went on to say that he was happy to be alive, noting that were it not for the seat belt, he would not be breathing.

“As crackdown continues. I’m glad to be alive thanks to seat belts. I was hit on the side this morning-rolling 3 times. My life literally flashed in front of me. Eye witnesses reckon were it not for the belts.....The impact is still banging in my head.” Read Ian’s tweet.

Matatu Crackdown following Michuki Rules

This comes in the wake of a crackdown on non-compliant motorists’ country wide, as the police reinforce the Michuki rules.

On Monday, majority of Kenyans were stranded and forced to walk to work after Matatus stayed off the roads due to non-compliance of Michuki rules.

However, the situation on roads improved on Tuesday after Matatu operators called off the strike on Monday evening and agreed to comply with the new rules which are being re-implemented.

Ian Wafula quit Mediamax’s K24 TV where he worked as a breakfast show-K24 Alfajiri host and joined the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in July 2018.
