The Nyamira junction is considered an accident hotspot.

Residents called on the Chinese company which is constructing the road through Ahero–Isibania road construction programme to erect bumps on the road.

“Lack of pumps on this road has led to many deaths and injuries through accidents. We are appealing to the contractor to erect bumps on this road,” said Caren Otieno, a resident.

Rachuonyo East Sub County police commander Justus Kucha urged residents to observe traffic rules to prevent more accidents in future.

“Let people observe traffic rules and be careful when using roads because that is the only way to prevent road accidents,” said Kucha.

The bodies were moved to Rachuonyo South Sub-county hospital mortuary in Oyugis town.
