Two people died on the spot after their vehicles collided along Kajiado-Namanga road on Saturday.
The accident occurred when a Toyota Probox collided with a truck driven by a Burundian national at about 6:30pm.
“The driver of the Probox tried to avoid hitting an on-coming trailer ferrying timber headed to Kajiado town . The Probox hit the front right side of the truck which made it swerve off the road,” Central Sub-County police commander Daudi Lornyokwe said.
Police gave the name of the Burundian who died in the accident as Isidore Birigirimana (34) and Edwin Audi, identified as an employee of Kenya Television Network (KTN) in Nairobi.
RIP Edwin Audi, this is soooo sad. He directed me and I remember joking on air with him about the type of car he drives, whether it's an Audi and we laughed… 'Asante bro, wewe ni gwiji' were his last words…. The coolest and most humble News director I have ever met
