The family of two women who died in a car accident on the eve of the new year in Kitengela is now requesting that the authorities install bumps along the busy Nairobi-Namanga road to prevent other accidents.
A 63-year-old woman and her 41-year-old daughter were hit and killed by a speeding Prado TX that is being held at the Kitengela Police Station while as investigation is beingconducted.
The family of Abigail Mogera, who was hit by the speeding car, and her daughter Catherine Mogera are still processing the tragedy.
Abigail’s son Willis Mogera said that his mother and his sister had been shopping at a mall across the street before they were killed.
Willis who was away with friends would later receive a strange phone call from hospital.
“I knew my mum had health issues so she was undergoing check ups. But I wondered why they took her to Saitoti hospital. He calls again…this time he became brave…he said there is a lady here and an old woman wametuacha,” he says.
According to the residents, the stretch has become a killer spot due to speeding. The area popularly known as Yukos has been labelled as a blackspot.
“There is a mall here, they need to put speed bumps there to end these incidents,” Willis says.
According to the reports, 32-year-old Waleed Khalid Alkizim who was driving the vehicle was in a hurry to return his father’s car that he had taken without his permission before causing the accident.
Waleed was released on a Ksh. 50,000 cash bail.
Kitengela OCS David Ole Shani says the accused will be arraigned in court after the post-mortem of the deceased which has been scheduled for Thursday.
The bodies of the deceased are lying at the Saitoti Hospital mortuary.
