The 2NK Sacco Management has taken action by recalling all its 800 shuttles from the road just days after one of its fleets was involved in a fatal road accident on January 1, 2022 – New Year Day.
The accident which occurred along the Webuye-Eldoret road left eight people dead and three others in bad state after their shuttle rammed a stationary lorry that had stalled on the road around 5:30am.
Following the accident – the Sacco has recalled from road its fleet of over 800 for a three-day mandatory inspection.
The Sacco took the step as it seeks to restore public confidence – while ensuring safety of its passengers especially now that many people are traveling.
According to 2NK Sacco Chairman James Kahiro, the inspection is being done by NTSA- and is meant to ensure all the vehicles do not have mechanical problems that can put passengers’ lives in danger.
