Faith Nduku was hospitalized at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Ward 6A, with injuries to her pelvic- urethra, and a broken right lower limb.

“Financially we are not well. It is a strain on all of us because of how Covid-19 impacted the industry. We had many people assist us so we were lucky to not have been stranded in bringing people back to the city after the accident. Now we just want to fundraise…,” Alliwah explained.

The news was broken by Theatrix’s founder, David Alliwah- a Kenyan gospel artiste and actor on the long-running local production, Vioja Mahakamani where he stars as the prosecutor.

He revealed that several team members escaped with minor injuries and some were lucky to come out of the public service vehicle wreckage unscathed.

The accident occurred at Karai near Naivasha around 4:30 am as they were heading to Nakuru city.

“Mentally, we received counselling on that fateful day and we have small meetings to talk. There are others we have allowed to go home to their families and when we are able, we get services from people who can talk to us and encourage us.

We are trying to monitor everyone and I call everyone to see how they are doing including the family of the deceased,” Alliwah said.
