A road trip for seven university students to attend a colleague’s birthday party in Kisii ended in tragedy after all but one perished in a grisly road accident that claimed eight lives.
Five students of Kenyatta University’s main campus in Nairobi and their friend from Dedan Kimathi University in Nyeri, left the city for Kisii County on Friday for the party in Magena village —before their lives were cut short along the Kisii-Kilgoris road.
They were travelling in a Toyota Noah, which had a capacity of eight people, including its owner, when they were involved in the 8pm accident with two other vehicles — a canter and a saloon car.
Another car had ferried more friends and their host ahead of them. Duncan Nyanaro, a Civil Engineering student at Dedan Kimathi University, was reportedly driving the car at the time of the accident.
The owner of the vehicle ferrying the students had allegedly driven from Nairobi but allowed Nyanaro to take over about 30km from Kisii town.
