The incident involving Njoro's car overturning in Kajiado along Maasai Lodge Road in Rongai was confirmed by Kajiado North police commander Hussein Gura.

Speaking at a security baraza alongside other local security officials in the county, Gura expressed his disappointment at the increasing number of such incidents in the area, especially considering that the road had recently been resurfaced.

Residents residing along the road have reportedly expressed their desire for the contractor responsible for building the road to install speed bumps.
