Eight perish on Eastern Bypass road accident


Eight people were on Sunday killed after a truck rammed two matatus on Eastern bypass, Nairobi.
Police said the truck driver had defied traffic police order to stop and tried to escape before ramming the matatus.
Witnesses, however, said the lorry was forced to come to an abrupt stop by traffic officers before its driver lost control and rammed the two matatus.
Locals barricaded the road with stones in protest, moments after the disastrous accident forcing the officers who were at the scene to flee for their lives.
The accident, which happened near Kangundo Road junction, caused a major traffic snarl up with motorists being advised to avoid the busy bypass. Majority of the victims were women headed for church events.
