Kenya: Driver's Licence Permanently Revoked for Crash That Claimed 8

Nairobi — The National Transport and Safety Authority has permanently revoked the driving license of truck driver Abdulle Ali, who caused the death of eight people at Chepsir, on the Kericho-Nakuru road last Friday.

NTSA says their investigations showed that Ali caused the accident by descending the climbing lane causing head-on collision with a Public Service Vehicle.

The collision occurred after the trailer, which was traveling from Kisumu going towards Nakuru swerved from its lane hitting the 14-seater matatu which was travelling in the opposite direction.

NTSA Director General Francis Meja says revocation was necessitated by the fact that the driver is a danger to road users in Kenya.
