Two people were injured this morning after Rwandan President Paul Kagame’s escort car was involved in a road accident at Ngarariga, along the Limuru-Nairobi highway in Kenya.
Earlier, there were reports that the car, which was part of Kagame’s entourage of more than 20 cars, lost control and swerved off the road before ramming onto an electricity pole in a nearby farm.
However, it later emerged that the car in Kagame’s convoy that veered off the Limuru-Nairobi Rd was an embassy vehicle. It burst a tyre but didn’t hit a pole as earlier thought.
Those injured in the 8:20am incident were rushed to Aga Khan Hospital for treatment.
Ngarariga area is reported to be a black spot with St. John Ambulance recently installing a rescue center nearby with an average of 28 rescue personnel to help accident victims.
