A Kenyan man died a painful death on Sunday morning after his car crashed and burst into flames in Nairobi.
The man identified as Kelvin K. Rono is said to have lost control of his car and rammed several trees near Sunshine Secondary School on Lang’ata Road in Nairobi.

“It happened that the said motor vehicle was being driven from Mbagathi roundabout direction towards Langata general direction,” said the police report.
His body was taken to the City Mortuary.
