A tractor driver was on Thursday arrested over accusations of causing the death of a 22-year-old man in Ndhiwa sub-county.
The suspect is accused of causing the death of Billy Clinton Ouma at Nguku trading centre along Kowuonda- Riat road while transporting sugarcane.
It was reported that Ouma had been given a free ride by the driver from Kowuonda. He however fell from the tractor before being run over Nguku.
Residents rushed him to a hospital but he died a few minutes later.
The driver, 37, was transporting sugarcane to Sukari Industry at Riat trading centre.
He was arrested and detained at Ndhiwa Police Station.
Ndhiwa sub-county police commander Paul Rioba said the driver will appear in court as soon as they are done with their investigations.
“We are still investigating the matter. He will be arraigned soon,” Rioba said.
“The young man boarded the tractor but there was no space for him to sit. It is better to board a motorbike instead of boarding a motor vehicle that has no space,” Rioba said.
The body was taken to Manyatta Kobodo mortuary.
