A driver was seriously injured after his speeding car killed nine cows on Kiambu-Ruiru road on Thursday.
The cows were grazing along the road at the time of the accident that left several others injured.
Francis Kamau, a resident, said the driver lost control at a bend near Membley and ran over the animals.
The driver was rushed to Kiambu Level Five hospital as residents scrambled for the ‘free meat’.
Police had a difficult time controlling the crowd that was overheard saying they couldn’t see the meat go to waste yet people are starving.
Ruiru OCPD Isaac Thuranira said the accident could have been avoided if the driver checked his speed.
“The bend is a notorious black spot. The accident was caused as a result of the driver’s carelessness,” the officer said.
Thuranira cautioned drivers against violating traffic rules, further asking locals to be careful while grazing their animals along the road.
