The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

For­mer Bar­clays Bank man­ager Peter Wan­jau has been killed in a road ac­ci­dent. The 60-year-old died in­stantly on Thursday night when his MercedesBenz crashed head-on with a can­ter at Olo­liondo, Ol Kalou. Wit­nesses said the driver of the can­ter was avoid­ing a pot­hole when he hit the Mercedes at 8pm.

Wan­jau, who is from Weru in Ol Joro Orok, Nyan­darua county, was driv­ing alone from Nairobi where he runs his busi­ness. The can­ter, which was head­ing to Gil­gil from Ol Kalou, had three oc­cu­pants.

One suf­fered head in­juries and is at the JM Me­mo­rial Hospi­tal, Ol Kalou. The other was rushed to Nakuru Level 5 Hospi­tal with a bro­ken left leg, while the third es­caped un­hurt. “[It’s] un­for­tu­nate that Wan­jau had to die when so­ci­ety still needed him,” Weru chief Peter Ki­ragu. Wan­jau was a board mem­ber at Weru Sec­ondary School.
