An oil tanker heading towards Uganda exploded on a road in Kenya killing at least 25 people. The truck had apparently lost control before crashing into other vehicles in Naivasha, north-west of the capital Nairobi. Eyewitness said that a huge fireball quickly engulfed the other vehicles which were on the busy road. It is suspected that many people who had gathered at the scene of the crash were also caught in the inferno too. Deputy Director of Kenya’s National Disaster Management Unit Mwachi Pius Mwachi, said the tanker had been travelling downhill when it went out of control. The accident has happened at a time when doctors are on strike in Kenya.
