July 1st, 2017 1 min read

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has come under fire after it absolved itself from blame after a vehicle hit and killed a two-year-old girl in Kisii County.

In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the roads authority said that the car that hit the girl was not theirs.

On Thursday, a car that witnesses claim belongs to NTSA, and which was pursuing a traffic offender, hit and killed a two-year-old child at Nyangusu trading center, Kisii County.

Witnesses said the vehicle was pursuing a Toyota Pro-box which was ferrying passengers.

The two-year-old was rushed to Akemo Valley Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to a witness, the car left a designated route in pursuit of the offending motorist only to cause the death of the child.

“We are asking the government to take action,” the witness said.
