Reports reaching indicate that Ms. Muntemba succumbed to injuries she sustained from the Lukenya Bridge accident, along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.

Chest and abdominal pain


Brenda Muntemba sustained chest and abdominal pains while Botswana’s ambassador to Kenya Duke Lephoko, had slight injuries on the left leg and above the knee. Joseph Guttu and Wasa Kaluwe who are also Zambian diplomats had fractures on their legs and a few bruises on their arms.

Ms. Brenda was then admitted into hospital and was operated on to stop internal bleeding before she was evacuated to a Nairobi hospital where she has been in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) until her death.

The foreign envoys were heading back to the city from a meeting at Maanzoni Lodge in Machakos County when the incident occurred.
