Ex-Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu was involved in a road accident along the Thika-Mwingi road last night, which claimed the life of his driver.
The accident happened at Kavenge area at around 11pm whereupon his Toyota LandCruiser collided with a tractor.
Mutambu was en route to Nairobi after visiting the scene of Saturday’s bus tragedy at River Enziu in which 32 people were killed. It is said he received a cold reception from locals and decided to travel back to Nairobi rather than spend the night in the area.
He reportedly lost several relatives in the drowning incident that involved a bus from St. Joseph’s Seminary. Mutambu and other occupants of the vehicle received treatment at Matuu Level Four hospital as the body of his driver was taken to Mwingi Level Four hospital mortuary.
