Human rights activist Boniface Mwangi’s family was yesterday involved in a bad accident along the Namanga-Amboseli road at Lorubuko.
Mwangi, who was travelling with his wife and three children revealed that the car skidded on loose gravel before losing control and flipping.
Terming the incident as ‘very scary’, Mwangi revealed that they sustained minor injuries, thanks to their safety belts.
“Thank you all for the kind messages. We are fine. The car lost control, we got off the road, cleared bushes and then the car flipped.
“When all that very scary experience stopped, all five of us were still belted and in our seats, upside down. Safety belts are lifesavers. Belt up,” he wrote.

Slaughtered a thank you goat for Sakita, Ngaiyai & co who came to our rescue. They found us outside the car and stared in disbelief, and then said Enkai (God) saved you. Told us we go, Maasais are good people and the car will be safe, lions and elephants don't eat or steal cars. pic.twitter.com/1Ee0esOv9q— Boniface Mwangi (@bonifacemwangi) April 7, 2019
