The Star (Kenya) - - Front Page -

One per­son died and six oth­ers were in­jured when a matatu col­lided with a Probox on the Kip­ipiri-Ol Kalou road on Sun­day.

The matatu be­long­ing to Molo Sacco was headed to Ol Kalou from Kip­ipiri and had four pas­sen­gers on board. The Probox be­longs to Charse Gi­tau, the pro­pri­etor of Mi­harati Med­i­cal Clinic in Mi­harati town Kip­ipiri. He was with two pas­sen­gers. Gi­tau’s car de­vel­oped a me­chan­i­cal prob­lem, he lost con­trol and hit the on­com­ing matatu. Gi­tau sus­tained mul­ti­ple frac­tures and was taken to Ki­jabe Mis­sion Hos­pi­tal. His lab­o­ra­tory tech­ni­cian died on the spot.

The matatu landed in a ditch. “The driver sus­tained a frac­ture while other pas­sen­gers had cuts wounds,” Kip­ipiri deputy po­lice boss Joseph Oduor said. Some of the in­jured were taken to JM Kar­iuki Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal in Ol Kalou.
