By Wanja Waweru
A fatal car accident in Msambweni, Kwale county, claimed the lives of a Briton and a Kenyan lady who was reportedly his girlfriend.
The head of the Kwale Police, Mr. Josphat Kinyua, confirmed the event and stated that speeding was to blame for the accident.
The two, Jackline Kendy, 21, and Adam James Stagg, 36, were reportedly riding a Suzuki sport motorcycle when the tragedy happened.
The accident occurred on Beach Road, in the direction of the Neptune area.
“The rider of the motorcycle (Adam) was carrying one pillion passenger (Kendy). Upon reaching the location of the accident, the rider hit a speed bump and veered off the road to the left where they hit a concrete wall,” explained Mr Kinyua.
The two are believed to have passed away instantly, and their corpses have been taken to the morgue of the Msambweni Sub-County Hospital in anticipation of an autopsy.
With the caption “Live your life for you and not for the world” on her Tiktok page, Ms. Kendy’s videos on social media showed an outgoing person who loved to live life to the utmost.
She had uploaded a film of herself and the Briton riding a motorcycle at an unnamed beach to Tiktok the day before the accident.
Ms. Kendy is seen riding the motorbike at the beginning of the video, which begins with the captions “Happiness is by Choice” and “Mapenzi,” which roughly translates to “Love.” The man then takes over as she sits in the passenger seat.
She posted videos and pictures of herself and the British man on February 12 with the caption, “This is how bad it hurts to say goodbye.”
The majority of her Tiktok videos featured her dancing and the couple at different beaches, showing how much they cherished going to the beach together.
She published a film of snow six days ago on Instagram with the caption, “88 days until summer, where I want to go, Finland.”
