Three family members were killed in a grisly accident on the Nairobi-Machakos highway on Wednesday night.

The vehicle they were in collided head on with a 14-seater Nissan matatu.

Mutunga’s son Roy Mwendwa was driving the saloon car when the accident occurred at Kanaani (Katheka Kai).

Mutunga died on Thursday morning in hospital while his son and grandson succumbed to their injuries later in the day.

The driver of the matatu died on the spot. The bodies have been moved to Machakos Hospital mortuary.

Machakos Director of Emergency Services David Mwongela said: “4 people who are critically injured are still at Machakos Level Five facility.”

14 others who had been taken to Machakos Level Four Hospital were treated and discharged.
