“I am at Mater Hospital receiving treatment after the accident. We were just two in the car, it rolled several times. We were near JKIA area and luckily we were not injured badly,” stated Olwal.
Olwal has been in Nairobi for the last three days for official duties as the Kisumu County Assembly Planning, Industrialization and ICT committee chairperson.
The leader was expected in Kisumu for a planned meeting with residents where he was supposed to hand over completed projects before heading to Eldoret for another county function.
The U-turn on Mombasa road has been a notorious spot with several motorists' cars rolling over at the spot.
Trucks have had the most number of accidents in the area.
