Two suspected robbers died in a fatal road accident at Tiwi Sokoni area in Kwale County on Wednesday evening.
The two died on the spot after their getaway motorbike rammed into a bus belonging to Shimoni Secondary School.
Confirming the incident, Matuga sub-County Police Commander Hassan Godana says that the two suspects had just stolen a phone from an M-Pesa shop in the area and were fleeing the scene of crime when the accident occurred.
“They got on the motorcycle and sped off when locals started chasing after them. They then rode into the highway without checking whether there was an oncoming vehicle and immediately got hit by the bus,” Godana says.
