BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,7TH DEC 2020-Four people died on the spot following a road accident involving a matatu along Mombasa-Malindi Road on Monday morning.
According to police, the Matatu rolled several times landing into a sisal plantation in Timboni area, Kilifi county.
Their bodies were taken to the Kilifi Hospital mortuary.
Six more people have been admitted at the hospital with serious injuries.
Speaking to the Star Kilifi South deputy sub-county police commander Paul Otieno said it’s not clear what might have caused the accident since the matatu didn’t collide with another vehicle.
He called on passengers to avoid boarding overloaded vehicles.
“If that Matatu had more passengers, maybe the fatalities would have been more. We are calling both drivers and passengers to follow the law,” he said.
On March this year, a crash involving a lorry and a passenger Matatu killed 13 people at Shauri Moyo area along the same road.
