Somber mood engulfed the residents of Karirikania village in Kuresoi North during the burial of the seven family members who perished two weeks ago in a grisly road accident at Salama area along Mombasa- Nairobi highway.

The seven family members, Francis Macharia 61, Irene Wang’ombe 37, Joyce Wairimu, Lemmy Macharia 12, Esther Nyambura 12, Esther Wanjiru 10 and Joyce Muthoni aged 8 years met their untimely death while on their way back home from Mombasa after an Easter vacation with other family members.

Local leaders present including the area governor Susan Kihika, area legislator Alfred Mutai and a number of Members of County Assembly (MCAs) condoled with the family and urged motorists to strictly adhere to the traffic rules to the latter in a bid to help curb the upsurge in road carnage.

Water, Sanitation and Irrigation CS, Zacharia Njeru who was also present during the burial appealed to all road users to be extra cautious when on the road and take it up as a personal responsibility to ensure that there is sanity on the roads.

Among the survivors of this horrific accident were other five family members who were treated and discharged from various hospitals.
