BY ALLAN JAMES IN KISUMU COUNTY.
A middle-aged man died on Thursday night after he threw himself in front of an oncoming bus at Kachok area on the Kisumu-Nairobi highway.
The man, who is yet to be identified, jumped from a footbridge constructed near Lions High School.
Reports claim the man had earlier Thursday quarreled with his girlfriend.
Eye witnesses say the now-deceased timed a speeding Nairobi-bound bus and threw himself in front of it at 10pm. The vehicle crashed the man to death, completely disfiguring him.
The incident caused a traffic snarl-up on the busy road.
The deceased was moved to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
