Accident leaves 2 dead in Bomet as DP Ruto tours the area

Tragedy in Bomet as Ruto tours the county

Eyewitnesses disclosed that the accident involving a matatu and a private car happened as the matatu belonging to Bomet travellers SACCO attempted to overtake, before colliding head on with an on-coming car.

The accident along the Chebole on the Sotik-Narok highway is the latest in a series of fatal crashes that began in the month of December leaving more than 1000 casualties.

The injured were rushed to Tenwek and Kaplong mission hospital for treatment.

It is feared that the number of causalities could rise.

President Uhuru Kenyatta recently directed police officers to move in with speed to restore discipline on Kenyan roads so as to tame rising road carnage.

This happened as DP William Ruto toured Bomet to launch roads in the county.

Residents have decried the poor state of roads in the county and have urged the Jubilee administration to address the issue.

Concerned residents expressed concern over the Government’s failure to fund the long proposed tarmacking of the key road from Chebole to Kimuchul.
