Nairobi Nyeri distance vs Wahome Gakuru speed.

Unread post by iMansfield » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:07 pm

The distance between Nairobi and Nyeri is 150km approximately.

If Wahome Gakuru was travelling at a speed of 240km/hr?That means he would have arrived in Nairobi within 1hr taking note of the bumps in towns between the two location and sharp bends.

If you've travelled from Nairobi to Nyeri,He should have left Nyeri at 4AM because he knew the terrain wasn't that good and its crazy to drive at such high speeds between Thika and Nyeri,what led to such speeds?

What led to the tyre burst?

Why did the brakes fail?even if the tyre burst led to brake fluid loss,the brakes would still have worked for some time?

Did the vehicle not have hand brakes?

Where was the car the previous night before the accident?

What was the work schedule of the driver two days before the accident?

If its a Japanese car id buy the theory,A German car cant do such in normal circumstances.

Even a politician doing 220 Kmh on a curvy, wet road in the early dusk rain is not immune to tragic accidents. Just like you and I.

How did you know he was doing 240km/hr?

For someone who has used that road his entire life,why would he do that speed before dawn?

Nyeri to Kabati is 100 kilometers. As per the driver, they left Nyeri at 5.30am, and the accident occurred at 6.50 am. They therefore traveled 100 km in 1 hour and about twenty minutes, which is an average of slightly less than 100 kph. It is quite possible that they picked up speed at the time of the accident. But it looks like they were well within reasonable speed all the way from Nyeri

They should be looking into ways of re-configuring that section of the road (Black Spot) and not look to blame someone or entity.

Wait you will see them fly their choppers to the funeral.

It is idiotic for a driver to cause such kind of damage at a speed of 100kmhr,

The late governor should have hired a professional driver,well skilled.When you hire a D- and give him an automatic Mercedes to cruise you,this is bound to happen.

To make matters worse,the driver doesn't know when the vehicle was last serviced,

Due to tribalism
most positions in Kenya are given to who is available rather than from a wide pool of qualifieds

Precisely,

We can now conclude the cause of his death to be tribalism and nepotism,Hiring a driver because he knew the grandad probably and was from his own tribe.

No reasonable driver would cause such an accident a speed of 100kmhr.

Most drivers, cleaners and messengers in most counties are drawn from the local population. There is nothing wrong with that, and I don't think we should regard it as tribalism. The issue here should be whether the driver was competent to handle the car. Graduating from driving dilapidated county ambulances into driving a top notch performance car without the requisite training is a recipe for disaster. Other issues should be whether the driver was familiar with the road to Nairobi, and whether he was well rested, considering the journey started at 5.30 am.

I don't think mechanical issues may be a factor here. A 3 year old Mercedes with minimal use is probably still under warranty, and is as good as new. Therefore, service on such a new vehicle is largely perfunctory, involving basic things such as oil / filter change.

Going by the fresh details,

The person who used to buy the tyres maybe used to buy fake or used tyres or pocket the money,

Secondly,The vehicle was never serviced and if the service was done,it used to be somewhere in jua kali with fake products,

When you combine this with an incompetent driver who was maybe drunk or overworked,shit was bound to happen.

The cause of this accident is almost similar to Saitoti accident or Kenya police chopper accident due to corruption(read maintainabce funds)

While I wish the departed governor to rest in peace, one must also question the management skills of his personal assistant. It is rather rushed to have an early morning appointment in Nairobi and hope to make it on time from as far as Nyeri. Why not sleep in Nairobi, or have the talk show host give you an afternoon slot?
