A somber mood engulfed Orange House in Thika Town Sunday afternoon as members of Ngogoyo 237 Sacco mourn the sudden death of their vice Chairperson who died early this morning after the car he was driving was involved in an accident.

Mr. Onesmus Kimani Ndung'u lost his life in the accident that occurred near Kenya Vehicle Manufacturers (KVM) along Thika Garissa Highway at around 5:00am as he was leaving for town.

According to police report, Kimani was driving towards Thika Town when he lost control of his vehicle and swayed onto the opposite lane of the road. In the process, an oncoming Kenya Mpya bus rammed into his vehicle, killing him instantly. The impact of the crash extensively damaged the vehicle.

Friends and colleagues of Kimani could be seen talking in low tones, most of them in total disbelief of the whole incidents. Several of them, especially those who he had spent his last moments together at the Orange House could not hold their tears when narrating of their last moments.

Kimani had spent the better part of Saturday evening with friends at the Orange House. Those who saw him last night said that he was in his usual jovial moods and no one expected such news.

Fredrick Giturwa (Kinyambi 1960) was among the last people to see Kimani. He was in total shock to a point that he was unable to comprehensively come into terms with the reality.

Otherwise, he said that the Ngogoyo team were sitting to arrange for the last respects for their fallen hero. He added that they were also planning for a major demonstration against the Kenya Mpya Bus Company tomorrow (Monday) at 10:00am to protest the frequency in which these buses were getting involved in accidents.

"How many people must die before the authorities take action against these buses? The goings-on in Kenya Mpya's buses must be taken seriously," he said.

He called for action to be taken against these drivers who caused loss of lives through reckless driving, saying most accidents involving Kenya Mpya buses occurred either due to reckless and carelees driving or speeding.
