Six people have lost their lives following an accident at Masimba market in Kajiado County, along the busy Nairobi-Mombasa Highway.
Confirming the incident was Makueni County Commissioner Mohammed Maalim who noted that several people have also been injured but have been rushed to various hospitals including Makindu Hospital.
A 14 seater matatu is said to have collided with a lorry hence the fatal morning accident.
On Friday, at least 11 people died after a trailer and a 2NK shuttle collided at Kikopey along Nakuru-Nairobi highway.
“All the eleven passengers in the matatu that include six women and five men died on the spot while the driver of the truck escaped soon after the accident.
The information we are getting is that the truck started swaying from one side of the road to the other before hitting the matatu and the other vehicles,” Gilgil police boss Emmanuel Opuru.
