Transport along Mombasa-Nairobi highway was paralyzed for nearly 8 hours early Wednesday following heavy traffic jam between Salama and the Machakos turn off.
The jam started building up after three lorries collided near Malili township at 10 pm on Tuesday blocking the busy road. Seven people were injured according to Makueni County Commissioner Mohammed Maalim.
The gridlock eased about 8 hours after the accident occurred following an intervention from traffic police, opening a floodgate of buses and trucks revving to recover time lost from sitting in the gridlock.
We expect delays in today’s bus arrivals and departures due to unavoidable traffic jam that made the road impassable. Happy Holidays.
