KTN TV senior anchor Ben Kitili recently escaped death by a whisker while cycling around the city. The father of two shared a photo of his bruised arm, narrating how a motorist knocked him off.
NAIROBI is one of the most hazardous cities for cyclists. This happened to me two weeks ago – knocked off the road by an idiot of a driver. Non-motorised transport infrastructure is needed. Good manners too. To borrow a quote, barabara si ya mama yako bwana,’ he posted on social media.
His followers reacted to the post, with many condemning rogue motorists. Check out reactions
Bernard Ndong Pole sana bro, that must have been scary…
kyalo_m Cycling is a death trap, there are drivers out there who don’t see cyclists as deserving of tarmac.
Caroline Makandi That looks painful!! Pole
amran_shariff We just lost my neighbours son yesterday, he was hit by a lorry, only 12yrs of age. He was also cycling on his bicycle @benkitili
Mwanaume kamili! Ben Kitili responds to Muslims after they trolled his wife for marrying a Christian
James Wanyoike Many parts have no cycle paths. What most hawkers are occupying are designated as parking spots and verandahs NOT cycle paths.
David Solit Sum Very sad. …every road user is at risk whether pedestrian or cyclist or motorists. Track drivers kill innocent motorists. Let’s all take care knowing that a mad man could be on the wheel
Pancwise Gamgee Pole sana man. I don’t know why motorists assume that we cannot share the road.
Anne Mute Motorists should understand that we all have a right on the road. – driving, riding, cycling, walking – So we should learn to share the road. I’m sorry about what happened to you.
