Four diplomats are admitted to Machakos Level 5 Hospital after they were involved in a multiple-car crash along Mombasa Road on Tuesday evening.
The four include Zambia’s ambassador to Kenya Ms. Brenda Mudenda, Botswana’s ambassador Duke Lephoko, Zambian High Commissioner to Kenya Joseph Guttu, and Kama Wasa Kaluwe, a Zambian diplomat.
The diplomats sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash that happened at Lukenya Bridge on Mombasa-Nairobi Highway.
They were rushed to Machakos Level 5 Hospital in serious conditions.
Police say the four diplomats were traveling back to Nairobi from a meeting at Maanzoni Lodge in Machakos County.
The 5 pm crash occurred after the driver of a vehicle coming from the opposite direction failed to give way to the diplomats' convoy, resulting in the head-on collision with the vehicle carrying the Zambian ambassador.
The other diplomats' vehicles also lost control in the process and collided with other cars using the busy highway.
