Area residents who were at the scene, said the road has a lot of sharp turns and drivers need to be careful to avoid accidents. They said they’ve appealed with the national government and the Nandi County government to intervene and find a solution on the road’s sharp turns but nothing has happened.
“The barriers they erected, were constructed on the wrong side which does not assist at all thus we call upon the government of Nandi to consider constructing bumps on this road” one of the eyewitnesses said. The bodies of the deceased were retrieved by police officers and taken to Nandi Hills hospital mortuary. Chepsangur valley has been a black spot and road accidents have been experienced there due to the sharp turns along the Nandi Hills-Gubere route.
