Raila Decries ‘Return of Madness’ to Roads after Kisumu Crash

ODM leader Raila Odinga has joined Kenyans in condoling the victims of the Kericho-Kisumu road accident that occurred early Friday morning.

Thirteen people were killed and scores of others injured in the grisly road accident near Awasi along the Kisumu-Kericho Highway.

“I pass sincere condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and the injured in the Awasi accident. We wish quick recovery to the injured,” Raila said in a statement.

Raila stated that the accident is a continuation of the return to madness, particularly by long distance drivers.

“This madness is certainly aided by corruption on the roads where reckless drivers know they can always bribe traffic officers and continue endangering lives,” he said.
