Eight people died in a grisly road accident that occurred at Malii along the Mombasa-Nairobi highway. The accident occurred some few meters from Salama marke in Makueni County.
Among those killed was the driver of the minibus christened Jasho Dreams that plies Nairobi and Kambu shopping centre in Makueni County.
