Two yet-to-be-identified lovers have died after the car they were in, slid into a dam in Murera Ward of Juja, Kiambu county, Kenya.
The man and the woman were reportedly having a “good time” inside their vehicle on the night of Tuesday, January 17, 2023, when the incident happened.
John Mugo, an eyewitness said;
“They were enjoying themselves but unfortunately the car slipped into the water. We don’t know how their vehicle slipped into the dam as the two were just relaxed. They seemed to have been having a good time.”
Brian Njoroge, a resident in the area also said;
“People come here to have fun but we need to have control personnel to ensure such incidents do not happen again in future.”
As at Wednesday evening, area MCA Ngatha Wambiri revealed that rescuers had managed to recover the body of the female victim while efforts to recover the unidentified man and the vehicle were underway.
He warned Kenyans against enjoying entertainment near the dam and called for the fencing of the entire project to avert further incidents.
“We have five dams here some of which have been unsafe for locals. I am in the process of introducing a motion in the assembly that will seek to have them fenced. We cannot continue to watch as our people die over an issue we can solve.”
