Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenya's National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has launched an investigation into the road carnage that occurred on Sunday along the Eldoret-Webuye road, western Kenya, which resulted in the deaths of eight people and the injury of several more.

It was a trailer and a 14-seater matatu belonging to 2NK Sacco that was involved in the accident, which occurred in Kakamega County.

The Authority, in collaboration with other relevant agencies, has initiated an investigation into the incident to cast some light on what had happened.

"As part of the Authority's crash investigation function, a technician team comprised of investigators, inspectors, and representatives from the National Police Service (NPS) was dispatched to the scene to conduct investigations," the National Transportation Safety Administration (NTSA) said in a statement on Sunday.

"The incident has been photographed and videotaped to determine the cause of the accident and provide useful advice."

The NTSA also indicated taking required procedures against the parties found to be responsible, particularly the matatu Sacco, which has subsequently come under great criticism.

In its statement, the Authority claimed that "a complete report is currently being developed to guide on the required actions to be taken against the Sacco."

The Authority has urged motorists to be vigilant on roads.
