Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi's car was on Wednesday torched by an irate mob after it hit and killed a boda-boda rider and his pillion passenger in Ololulung’a, Narok County.

The deputy governor, who was heading to Nairobi along the Bomet-Narok Road, escaped unhurt together with his two aides. 

Mr. Maangi noted that his driver tried his best to avoid hitting the rider after the latter joined the road abruptly.

“My driver was driving my official car as we were on our way to Nairobi when the bodaboda operator abruptly joined the road from a bushy path and quickly turned towards us hitting the car head-on.

"Unfortunately, we have lost two people in the accident. They burnt my vehicle when police tried to remove the two bodies from the scene,” the Deputy Governor said.
