A section of residents of Bungoma County paralysed transport along Webuye-Malaba Highway after a trailer ran over two individuals, killing them instantly.
The transport was paralysed for over five hours on Kanduyi-Malaba highway as the residents prevented Bungoma police from taking the bodies of the departed.
A trailer ran over two people – a 26 year old man and a 52 year old woman on Thursday 21st May, 2020.
The residents accused the police of relaxing their muscles in curbing the rising cases of road accidents on the said Highway.
Rarely does a month end without a major fatal accident on the Webuye-Malaba highway.
Most of the accidents involve the trailers.
Last year, the police themselves fell victims when a trailer rammed into their vehicle, killing at least three on the spot.
