NTSA has also summoned officials of Green Line Bus Company following another accident at Kamara along the Nakuru-Eldoret highway that left nine dead.

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) on Monday revoked the license of a truck driver who was involved in a Nakuru crash that claimed eight lives.

In a statement seen by Ureport, NTSA noted that Abdulle Ali Mohamed was at fault since he was descending in the climbing lane towards oncoming traffic without due care, causing a head-on collision with a PSV belonging to South Rift Sacco.

“The revocation was necessitated by the fact that the driver is a danger to all road users and should never be allowed to drive on Kenyan roads.

“The Authority also cautions motorists that similar action shall be taken against drivers who disregard traffic rules,” read the statement in part.

NTSA has also summoned officials of Green Line Bus Company following another accident at Kamara along the Nakuru-Eldoret highway that left nine dead.


The accident occurred in the wee hours of Sunday morning and involved a bus and a truck.

According to Nakuru County Police Commander Stephen Matu, the bus was overloaded and the driver was overtaking when the crash happened.

Both drivers lost their lives.
