The eyewitnesses, Tenants of Mundu Apartments who witnessed the incident from the building’s balcony said the vehicle was trying to overtake an ambulance that was ferrying a patient to a nearby private facility.

“There was an ambulance that was headed in the same direction with the car and the driver of the car tried to overtake in this narrow road that has no bumps. The ambulance slowed down to allow them to pass and it was during this time when the car deviated from the road, smashed a wall, and plunged into a building compound,” said Charity Kiamba, an eyewitness.
