Kirinyaga county women representative Purity Ngirici is saddened by the untimely demise of her nephew who died in a road crash along the Arusha-Namanga road on Sunday, April 21.
Two drivers participating in the car racing competition lost control and crashed their vehicles into the crowd of spectators killing eight Kenyan citizens.
In a Facebook post shared on Monday, April 22, Ngirici described her nephew, only identified as Robin, as a young and passionate man who had a great future.
“Robin was a young man of virtue. I recall with nostalgia his passion for everything his mind set to do. He was a sociable bubbly gentleman who like any other young person had great dreams for his future.
Confirming the incident, Kajiado Deputy County Commissioner Charles Wambugu said details of the accident were still scanty.
“We have received information that eight people died in a car racing contest in which Kenyans and Tanzanians participated. We have since confirmed eight of those who died are from Kenya,” he said.
