Kindiki Accidents Response

With 4,324 deaths in one year as a result of road carnage, the Cs declared  the menace worse than COVID 19 pandemic.

“It’s up to Kenyans to save ourselves because these deaths are too much and premature. We had Covid-19, a terrible epidemic in two years, and the people who died out of the pandemic were over 4,000. Yet in one year alone 4,324 died out of crashes. This means that this problem is worse than the pandemics,” he said.

Immediate Measures

The new measures includes bringing back  National Transport and Safety Authority officer to the road, additional officers  to enhance enforcement among other measures.

“On Monday we lost close to 20 people in separate incidents. Road accidents are becoming a major killer in our country,” the CS added.

“We must obey traffic rules, we must all work together and clean our roads from all manner of rogue road users who are careless,” Kindiki said.
