Three people died at Duka Moja area along the Narok-Mai Mahiu road in a grisly road accident involving a trailer and a saloon car. All the occupants of the saloon vehicle which was traveling towards Narok town died on the spot, police said. âThe driver of the saloon car was trying to overtake moments before the accident. The lorry driver which was travelling at a high speed tried to apply breaks but unfortunately, it was late,said Grace Kakai, the outgoing Narok County Police Commander.
Police and the public had difficult time in retrieving bodies of the victims which were trapped in the mangled wreckages. A week ago, three people died in the same spot when a lorry whose driver had lost control of it, rammed onto another that was stationary. The driver has since been charged in a Narok court with causing deaths through reckless driving.
Sianto Sikawa, a honours graduate from Daystar University (Electronic Media and Public Relation) was on Saturday night crowned the winner of 1st Miss Tourism Narok County at Loita Plains Hotel in Narok.
The function was graced by Narok Governor Samuel Kuntai Ole Tunai who expressed his willingness to support youths and tourism to increase number of tourist who come to the county.
Plans by Narok Governor Samwuel Tunai to relocate Narok town to Holding Grounds at Limanet have been resisted by a section of Maasai elders and legislature Moitalel ole Kenta.
Led by the National Coordinator of Maasai Council of Elders Hassan ole Kamwaro and former Narok North MP Moses ole Marima, the elders said they are opposed to the plan because the county government has not consulted them yet the 600-acre piece of land earmarked for the project is owned by the community.
“We shall not accept any transfer of our land to the county government without proper consultation. We are saddened that the governor wants to acquire our land without our consent and we totally refuse this,” said Mr Kamwaro.
