This year could be the worst for road users across the country as accidents are likely to hit an all-time high, a National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) report showed in July.
Overall, Kenyans seriously injured on the road reached 3,078 in 2019 compared to 2,061 last year. This was an increase of 1,017 serious injuries.
Inspector-General Hillary Mutyambai warned against speeding saying that stern action will be taken against reckless drivers.
“Overloading and speeding of all private and Public Service Vehicles shall not be tolerated,” he said.
