Video of Kasarani Driver Dangerous Stunts Stirs Debate

  • A dashboard camera video showing a Kasarani driver pulling some dangerous drivings stunts on the road and nearly landing in a fatal accident has sparked online debate.

    Despite the sharp curves on the road, the driver is seen recklessly driving at an alarmingly high speed.

    The driver comes zooming past the car that recorded the accident as he hoots along the Neema Section along the Kasarani-Mwiki Road.

    As he approaches the Thika Super Highway, the driver appears to have a change of thought on entering the intersection at the high speed.

    Instead, he chooses to brake and veer off the road to the right which sees the car toppling on the passenger side.

    Luckily for the motorist, some witnesses rush to the scene and turn it up in a matter of minutes with the driver seen still clinching on to the steering wheel.

    Kenyans across social media have come out calling out the driver for the reckless act that appeared to imitate thrilling maneuvers from a movie scene.

    Trying to think of a pun. Basin....he almost poured the baby out with the bath water

    Luckily the rollover was few metres away from the main road. It'd have turned tragic !

    The love of thrill among some Kenyans has seen them participate in some risky on-road adventures seeking the adrenaline thrill.

    A notable event is the Murang'a Time Trials (Murang'a TT) underground racing event that took place in March where several accidents were witnessed.

    Sports journalist Saddique Shaban had raised alarm on the high risk posed by such stunts during the Murang'a TT: "Car enthusiasts are racing on open, public roads with standard passenger cars, thought to be fast.

    "These cars are not meant for racing and most drivers do not have special racing kits or safety harness, other than helmets and hand gloves," Saddique noted.

    Here is a video from the Kasarani incident:

    Somewhere in Kasarani this moron thought he had the same cornering abilities as those of a Bimmer. Hope he learned his lesson. pic.twitter.com/dbY2Hqy6KX
