I need answers: KarehB cries out after son dies in Chavakali boys crash

Mary Wangare Gioche, popularly known as KarehB, whose 17-year-old son Joseph Mwadulo died in a road accident involving students from Chavakali Boys High School, says she is breaking down.

She is angry at the government, which she holds directly responsible for her son’s death. “Do we need to resurrect the late John Michuki (to help you get it right on our roads)?” she wondered in a post on social media.

Mwadulo, a KCSE candidate this year, was among the students released from school at 11pm to travel to Nairobi for the April holidays but was the only one killed in the midnight accident.

The students were travelling in an Easy Coach bus that overturned at Mamboleo junction in Kisumu County.

“I need answers, I am breaking apart…Go well, my son… I have been a parent at Chavakali Boys for the past four years and no one has bothered to call me to discuss my son’s death,” she said.

“Is my son worth 30k? Chavakali Boys; when are you planning to communicate?” she posed.

She took Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu to task, asking him to explain what policy permits minors to travel during the night.

“Transport and Roads CS too (Kipchumba Murkomen)…where was the whole structure of traffic marshalls…Was it asleep that no one noticed minors travelling at night?” KarehB prodded.

She put the whole government on task to explain: “What is your take on this issue..are you going to continue being silent as the country loses more children on the roads?”

She wants to know the measures being put in place to curb the surging road accidents, especially involving school children.

In an earlier interview, KarehB explained how the birth of Mwadulo brought her abundant joy.

“The bundle of joy brought into me the fulfillment of a desire…made me feel wholesome as a woman and I knew my life had taken a new leaf of being called a mother. I was elated,” she said.

She had expressed her devastation upon learning of his death far away from home.

“I am devastated. The anguish in me knows no boundaries. But I will hold on. I will accept the will of God. But it is hard to forgive, for the death of my son was as a result of dereliction of duty,” she said.

Saying she learnt of the accident on social media, KarehB recalled how she made desperate calls of enquiry and “one teacher told me that all those who had survived the accident had been given phones to call their homes.”

KarehB had, in 2021, lost her elder sister, Winfred Mukami, who was an NTV newscaster.

Burial arrangements for the late Mwadulo have since commenced at Blue Springs Hotel along Thika Super Highway.
