Wangari was carrying the baby on her back while walking along the road when she was hit.

The accident came barely a day after two people, including an AP officer and a female passenger, died in an accident on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

James Kabono from the Naivasha Safety Group said the woman was taken to Naivasha Sub-County Hospital, where she died.

He said the blame lay squarely with the driver who was speeding.

“It’s a big tragedy as the deceased was a mother of 10. The first born is around 18 years and the last is the one-year-old".
