Religious leaders in Njoro have convened prayers at the Prestige area along Njoro -Mau Narok Road just a few meters before Egerton University Njoro.
They convened prayers this morning to condemn road accidents that have become so frequent in the Prestige, Kenyatta and Biashara Master along the Njoro-Mau Narok, Nakuru -Njoro and the Njoro -Elburgon roads respectively.
According to Bishop Paul Wambua, the area has taken the lives of innocent people, not leaving behind fellow pastors.
“As God’s servants, we cannot just sit down and watch as lives continue to be lost on the roads, we need to stand up against all the bad spirits that have left children orphaned,” he said.
“When we sat to discuss the situation on our roads, we discovered that most road accidents have been so frequent and we needed to do more besides just advising the road users to be cautious. “Joseph Mwaura, another bishop added.
In a sermon that lasted twenty minutes, the pastors poured anointing oil on the specific areas on the road, condemning all the bad spirits and loss of lives and any occurrence of accidents.
These routes road users were happy that the prayers were convened saying that the frequent accidents had become something to worry about since the road is still well done and without any distractions.
“You know these road accidents happen too often and we wonder what spirits are on the road. You can see the road is still very intact and without any noticeable confusion.” Retorted Kizito Monda, a boda boda rider.
In a span of three months, the pastors said more than ten people have lost their lives and they were not in for any more burials inculcated by accidents.
“The young people using the roads have been so careless, and a big percentage of injuries and deaths witnessed here have occurred due to their carelessness,” Lucy Nyawira, another pastor and Njoro resident noted.
They are now urging the road users to strictly follow the road instructions, and especially those using motorbikes to use reflector jackets and helmets as they are the most hit.
“We are also requesting the government through the KENHA and KERRA to erect bumps and broaden the road to avoid congestion.”
