Man narrates last moments with heavily pregnant wife before she died in Maragua road crash

In Summary

  • Daniel Mwaura, husband to the deceased, is still reeling in grief, trying to come to terms with the tragedy.
  • At the time he was receiving the bad news, Mwaura says he had bought Lucozade and a bar of chocolate for his wife.

An expectant mother died on Thursday evening after she was involved in a road accident in Maragua along the Murang’a-Kenol Road.

The accident happened at around 7 pm near Virgin Hospital when the motorcycle carrying Carol Mumbi, 22, was reportedly hit by a vehicle just when the rider was joining the junction towards Maragua town.

Eye witnesses say the vehicle was trying to overtake another one when it hit the motorcycle. In the process, another vehicle that was coming from Kenol towards Murang’a town ran over Mumbi.

She sustained serious head injuries and was rushed to the nearby Virgin Hospital where she died while receiving treatment.

Mumbi’s husband in grief, shock

Daniel Mwaura, husband to the deceased, is still reeling in grief, not coming to terms that his dream of being a father has been cut short.

Mwaura says that earlier during the day his wife had informed him that she was having labour pains and needed to go to the hospital. Mwaura advised her to go and seek medical attention promising to join her later, only to get a call from the hospital that his wife was no more.

At the time he was receiving the bad news, he had just bought a bottle of energy drink – Lucozade – and a bar of chocolate for his wife.

The bereaved man is now calling upon the relevant authority to investigate the matter and whoever is found culpable to face full wrath of the law.

Increase in fatal accidents

The Maragua business community led by Kenneth Maguta says the area is fast becoming a black spot.

The business community and the area administration have tried petitioning the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) to put up bumps and rubble strips to reduce accidents but to no avail.

According to Virgin Hospital clinical officer Brian Shimbore, the facility receives two accident victims daily. Shimbore is calling upon KeNHA to move with speed and address the matter.

On his part, the area MCA Charles Mwangi Ng’ang’a has urged the police to return alcoblow in order to tame drunk motorists who are causing accidents in the road.
