Migori Town is facing yet another tragic road accident after the April 8th accident.

The town has yet again witnessed a lorry loose control and ram into other vehicles and pedestrians just meters away from where the previous accident occured.

Migori Town is facing, among other issues, narrow roads and congestion along the roadside. The County Government is however working tirelessly to reduce such unfortunate accidents by all means possible.


About an hour ago, an accident occurred in Migori Town where a lorry plying the Kisii Migori Sirare route lost control and badly hit parked vehicles and ran into a ditch.

Preliminary report indicates that 11 people were injured out of which 1 person lost his life, two are in need of special medical attention while 8 have suffered soft tissue injuries.
