Nonetheless, this is not the first time an accident has been reported along the magadi road. Several matatu drivers are said to break most the traffic rule and could get away with it.

Overspeeding and overlapping are two major causes of road accident along the magadi road.

Accidents reported along magadi road

Last year, an accident had occurred near Nairobi women’s Hospital in Ongata Rongai and killed a Bodaboda rider. On that same week, two teens were killed on the spot in an accident along magadi road, close to Banda.

Besides those two accidents reported, a pedestrian was once killed by a lorry on Rimpa road which is also in Magadi road.

The public transport industry should always check on the speed and the condition of their vehicle. Moreso, they should aways ensure that their drivers are not under the influence of anything whenever they are at work.
