accidentThe Matunda Bus Company vehicle that killed over 36 people on Sunday, December 31 along the Nakuru-Eldoret highway was reported to the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) back in September.

The bus was involved in a head on collision with a trailer, REG NO KBK 907C ‘in the extreme left climbing lane.’ Preliminary reports indicate that the bus was over speeding and using the wrong lane.

The killer bus was on 25 September caught on tape overtaking at Kinungi, an area that has been marked as a ‘blackspot.’

A Twitter user, Big Sam reported the incident to the authority but no action was taken. Instead, he says, they (NTSA) asked him for his full names, email address and his phone number.

But NTSA has since banned night travel for all long distance public service vehicles.

”In order to review the current measures in place to improve road safety, the authority in consultation with other relevant government agencies hereby suspends night travel for all long distance public service vehicles from December 31. All travel must be scheduled to take place between 6am and 7pm,” the statement read.
