The incident comes hot on the heels of another scramble where residents in Kisii looted oil from a truck ferrying petrol that overturned along the Nyamataro-Daraja Mbili on January 9, 2021. That same month, a lorry ferrying bread was looted after it overturned at a shopping center in Kanyoni, along the Mangu-Naivasha road.
