Drunk behind the wheels seems to be a rule most Kenyans are determined to follow. Sadly Ken Wa Maria had to suffer the recklessness of other people this past weekend.kenwamaria4

The accident occurred along Thika Road, near Roysambu, while the famous “Fundamentals” singer was heading for a performance in Ruiru. His Rav4 was hit by a Toyota Premio from the rear, causing him to lose control veering off the road only stopping when he hit a lorry.Despite his car being completely smashed, Ken was able to escape with a few minor injuries. He was rushed to St. Francis community hospital, where he was visited by big politicians offering their condolences. He is currently recuperating and glad to be alive.

The police still haven’t officially said what caused the accident. But according to the singer, he suspects the other driver, who is also currently in hospital, had been drunk at the time.
