Central region police boss involved in Murang'a road accident

By Boniface Gikandi | July 19th 2021

Central Regional police commander Titus Karuri has been involved in a road accident at Kigumo, Murang’a County.

Karuri's vehicle was involved in the crash on Kangema-Kigumo road (Nyoka Nyoka). He was taken to the nearby Kigumo health centre for First Aid before being transferred to a city hospital for specialised treatment.

The accident occurred at Kirere market in Kigumo Sub-County. The senior security officials from the county have confirmed.

Murang’a County police commander Donatha Kiplangat confirmed the accident, saying Karuri was responding to treatment.

“For now he is in stable condition and is being attended to at Kigumo health centre, and more information will be released once we have it,” she said.

This comes hours after four women were killed by a vehicle whose driver lost control on Sunday evening on Murang’a-Kangema road.

During the 5pm accident, one died on the spot as three others succumbed at Murang’a County Referral Hospital.

Murang’a East police commander William Kiambi said one of the victims escaped unhurt after the driver of the vehicle coming from the Kangema direction lost control around Hilltop village.

The women were from a church meeting.

The driver of the vehicle fled the scene after he feared being lynched by residents who had rushed to the scene.

“The vehicle was towed to Murang’a police station for investigations,” the police commander said.
