Kenya’s Killer Roads: Questionable Driver’s Licenses and Dangerous Vehicles in Kenya

Has the network of roads criss-crossing Kenya become death traps?

Between 2020 and 2021, road deaths in Kenya rose by more than 20%. Last year, more than 4,500 people were killed and more than 16,000 people were injured.

The Kenyan government says that drunk driving, overloading and speeding are among the main causes of the carnage. But is corruption also a factor?

Journalist Richard Chacha, who himself was paralyzed in a traffic accident a decade ago, joins Africa Eye to expose scammers from driving schools who, for a fee, fix novice drivers to get behind the wheel without having to take a driving test.

Africa Eye also reveals how brokers take money to bypass vehicle security checks, allowing junk-worthy taxis to drive on the roads of Kenya… and carry passengers.
