Thika OCPD Mr. Erastus Muthamia has assured the family of Mr. Onesmus Kimani Ndung'u (30) and the Ngogoyo 237 fraternity that his office will do all that is possible to ensure that the issue surrounding his death is resolved expeditiously.

While responding to the grievances presented to him by the Ngogoyo team regarding to the spate of accidents caused by Kenya Mpya Buses in the recent times, Mr. Muthamia said that the police had commenced investigations to ascertain the real cause of the accident that occurred at dawn on Sunday killing Mr. Kimani instantly. He said that they were still waiting for the inspection report relating to this particular accident adding that they will immediately take appropriate action against anyone who they found culpable once the initial investigations were through. He called on anyone who might have witnessed the accident first hand to come forward and assist in unravelling this puzzle.

He assured them that no one, including the Kenya Mpya Bus Company, was above the law. He admitted to claims that this particular fleet of buses had in recent times been involved with so many accidents saying that his office would not let things go on like that.

"I am a 100% with you in this. I will ensure that before the end of this week we will have given you the answers relating to this particular accident. I will also present your grievances to the District Security Committee when we meet tomorrow (Tuesday)," he said.

The OCPD  admitted to not having any specific data detailing the actual number of accidents or figures of the number of casualties amounting from accidents caused or involving Kenya Mpya at the moment. However, he assured that this was possible since there was already in place, a system of compiling such data. 

He called on all PSV Saccos to manage their crew to ensure safety of all road users.

"Even if it means retraining your drivers in order to ensure our road safety, that is what all Saccos must do. We cannot let things go on like this," he asserted. 

He thanked Thika residents for their co-operation and assured them that the police will do all that was in their power to protect them.

He condoled the bereaved family and called on them to be patient as the police tried to get to the back of this matter. He also promised to provide security to mourners as they gathered in preparation of Mr. Onesmus' send off.
