Najua mtasema osungu but here is the crux. How can a guardrail spear a car? Si heri the guardrail itolewe so that cars can roll into the nearby plantation. The guardrail is doing the opposite of its mandate. Does it have one end hanging out menacingly? Is it of poor quality? Was it poorly mounted?
I mourn Dr. wahome Gakuru, the one guy who knew how to put David Ndii in his place intellectually.

Apparently this is not the first accident to happen in Kenya where a guardrail went through a car, the accidents just do not get media attention but images can be found online. It is also a problem in the USA but at least something is being done there for defective end rail guards.

In Kenya another guardrail without an end guard will be waiting to claim or maim its next victims perhaps for several decades to come, yet ironically these are newly built roads that should have the latest guardrail technology.

KeNHA in denial against the facts....
The guardrails on our highways are poorly designed and outdated, and that is why they have claimed tens of lives, including that of Gakuru,” said Peter Murima who heads the Motorists Association of Kenya.
“At the start of a guardrail, there should be a bend instead.”
The association is already preparing a petition, demanding a thorough investigation into the safety of guardrails on all roads in the country, in a bid to adopt international safety standards.
Murima cited several fatal or serious road accidents blamed on guardrails – including in September when a lorry veered off the road and hit a guardrail which is said to have made it roll, leading to deaths of 10 people, in an accident that involved four vehicles.
“We are equally concerned about this trend. We have had several accidents involving guardrails and in the process, motorists have lost their lives,” he said.
“A guardrail should save a life, they should not kill.”
But Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) Director General Peter Mundinia insists that the guardrails on the Kenyan roads are accepted internationally. https://www.capitalfm.co.ke/news/20...h-shines-a-spotlight-on-the-guardrail-paradox

I read somewhere today the car was doing around 220kph at the moment of impact.
Don't ask me who measured the speed but that's what's being said.
