Kenyans have woken up to devastating news after 40 people were killed in a horrific tanker accident at Kinungi, Naivasha.

40 people are believed to have died in a horrific accident after a tanker carrying highly flammable chemical lost control and rammed into a number of cars among them a psv matatu carrying passengers. The tanker is said to have exploded on impact, causing a fireball that engulfed nearby cars.

The accident comes at a time when the doctors and nurses are on strike. Many have also questioned the presence of a tanker on the road at night contrary to regulations. Others asked why the tanker was using the route instead of the prescribed Mai-Mahiu road which is largely reserved for trailers.
