Naomi said that the couple were heading to Githumu when they collided head-on with the other vehicle which was heading the opposite direction.

She added that while the vehicle carrying Unaitas Sacco staff was trying to negotiate a corner at a sharp bend, crashing onto the couple’s small saloon car.

The body of the deceased was laid at Githumu Mission hospital morgue and later transferred to Lee Funeral Home.

“My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow and grief. It is my prayer that the Almighty God will give you the strength and courage to bear the loss,” the President said in his message to the family.

He added: “Mama Susan Wairimu was a strong pillar to her family. She was equally respectable in the community. Her commitment to assisting the less fortunate will live on long after her departure,” the President said.
