An Isiolo gubernatorial aspirant has lost four relatives in a grisly road accident at Maili Saba along Meru-Isiolo highway.

Matopeni MCA Abdi Guyo’s family was headed to Isiolo from Nairobi in a Toyota Sienta when the vehicle lost control at Kona Mbaya and rammed into a fence killing the four on the spot.

Police reports indicate that the fatalities include the leader’s brother, his wife and their two children.

Two children were reportedly injured during the around 6:30PM accident and were rushed to Isiolo Referral Hospital for treatment. The bodies of the four are preserved at the facility’s morgue.

The incident comes barely two days after Governor Mohamed Kuti dropped his reelection bid in favour of Mr Guyo citing health concerns.

Dr Kuti, during a Sakuye clan meeting in Nanyuki, endorsed the Nairobi Majority Leader as his preferred successor saying he was equal to task to unite Isiolo communities and transform the face of Isiolo.

The Press Point condoles with Mr Guyo and his family for the loss of their loved ones and pray that God grants them peace at this difficult moment.
