Six people died and nine others were seriously injured following a road accident involving a matatu and a lorry in Naivasha on Saturday night.

The accident occurred after the lorry rammed into the oncoming matatu at Nyakairu center, killing four on the spot; among them the driver of the truck and three matatu passengers.

Confirming the incident, Naivasha Deputy OCPD John Kwasa said the bodies have been transferred to the Naivasha District Hospital mortuary.

James Kabono, the Chairperson of the Naivasha Road Safety Association, has since blamed the lorry driver for the accident.

Naivasha East MCA Stanley Karanja saidit was time speed bumps were erected in the black spot to reduce fatal accidents.
