A member of the Kiambu County Assembly Kung’u Wanjiku Smart escaped death narrowly when his vehicle was involved in an accident along the Northern Bypass early Saturday morning says his life is in danger.

Kung’u who represents the Kiamwangi ward in Gatundu South was driving back home after attending his father-in-law’s burial in Molo, Nakuru County when his car was hit from behind by another vehicle in Membley area.

The MCA who now says he fears for his life added that he was rescued by friends from being beaten by occupants of the other vehicle, including the driver who confronted him after the accident.

“I got concerned after noticing that the other vehicle was following me for some distance and when I reached the Kahawa West roundabout, I drove around to see whether it would pass, only to realize they were right behind me. I found that to be strange,” he said.

He then sped towards Ruiru, but when he slowed down to cross bumps near Membley Estate, the other vehicle rammed into his from behind, badly damaging it.

“On stopping after the impact, four people came out and confronted me claiming I was the one who hit their vehicle. But luckily I had called my friends including my Gitothua ward colleague who rushed to the scene and rescued me,” the MCA said.

Speaking at the Ruiru police station where both vehicles were towed, Kung’u who was accompanied by Gitothua ward MCA John Kamande ‘Coaches’, asked the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to get to the bottom of the matter, adding that the other driver escaped from the scene before police arrived.

“I came to the police station before 7am to record a statement ,but as we speak, the driver has not shown up, yet it is almost mid-day,” he remarked.

His colleague Kamande said the matter should be investigated thoroughly as it was not a “normal accident”, adding that the motive of the other driver was not clear.

“If this was a normal accident the person whose vehicle has hit yours from behind does not usually confront the the other driver. It appears these people were on a mission,” Kamande said.

He added that the issue should not be taken lightly since two months ago former Laikipia Senatorial aspirant Steve Chege died after his car was involved in a mysterious accident at the same spot.

A police source said the matter was being treated as an accident
