Kenya: Public Service Drivers Blamed for Accidents

ERRANT drivers and conductors are to blame for the increasing rate of road carnage in the country, country's deputy traffic commandant Samuel Kimaru has said.

Kimaru attributed the death of more than 53 people during the festivities to the drivers; conductors and motorcyclists that he said were not willing to tore the line and follow the traffic rules.

"Errant Public service vehicle drivers are the greatest impediment we are having as far as addressing the issue of road carnage is concerned. Motorcyclists are many and covering all of them is also not a simple task," said Kimaru.
