Police want Kenya Urban Roads Authority to erect guard rails at a scene where four people were yesterday (Sunday 20, 2022) killed along Ngong Road, Nairobi near Jamuhuri Show Ground.

The four died after a vehicle they were travelling in plunged into a railway track near Dagoretti on Ngong Road, Nairobi.

This was after the four-wheel-drive car hit a roadside wall and plunged into the track almost five meters down.

Police and witnesses said the car was moving from Karen direction to the city centre when the driver lost its control after the hit and plunged into the track.
