Coastweek-- One of the safety training beneficiaries in Ukunda.
Road Safety campaign to reduce accidents
on Likoni-LungaLunga Road

Coastweek-- Residents in Ukunda last week participated in a road safety training exercise aimed at sensitizing road users along the Likoni-Lunga Lunga highway on safety practices.

The safety campaign spearheaded by mining company Base Titanium was aimed at reducing road accidents and improving road use behaviour.

The training targeted kart-pushers, motorcycle users, PSV drivers and pedestrians.

The training coincided with a push from the national government, notably the Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Internal Security and Coordination of National Government Dr. Fred Matiang’I, to increase oversight on the roads aimed at reducing road accidents across the country.

According to data from the National Transport and Safety Authority statistics, the number of people killed on the road has increased in 2018.

By 13th August, 1,859 people had died in road accidents, while in 2017 the number of deaths was 1,760, Pedestrians remain the most vulnerable, accounting for 709 recorded deaths this year.

Jumah Lumumba, the Community Life Skills Superintendent at Base Titanium said “The Likoni-Lunga Lunga Highway is an important transport corridor for Base’s operations, and like elsewhere on the mine site, safety is our primary concern. By raising road safety awareness, we hope to make Kwale safer for all road users.”
