Popular Kikuyu benga musician Kamande wa Kioi has been discharged from Nairobi Women’s Hospital after a road accident on Wednesday night with a Nazigi Sacco bus.
The artiste said that he was nursing minor injuries after the bus collided with his car at 10pm at Githurai when he was heading to Zimmerman.
Kamande wa Kioi said the bus, which had the driver only, was trying to avoid a tuk tuk landing in his lane and hitting his car.

The artiste said he had legs, hands and head injuries and that he left unconscious after the accident only to find himself at the hospital on Thursday morning.
The guitar wizard said he has recorded a statement at Kiamumbi police station over the incident and has called upon his fans to pray for the state of the roads in the country.
“I thank God that I’m safe. I urge Kenyans to pray for the state of roads while motorists must exercise caution while driving,” Kamande wa Kioi added.
Two years ago, Kamande wa Kioi was transferred to the same hospital after he complained of dizziness and fatigue from Kenol Hospital in Murang’a. He was diagnosed with kidney failure.
The musician’s accident came barely a month after John Mwangi Ng'ang'a alias John De'Mathew died after his car hit a truck along Thika Kenol Highway.
The death of John De’Mathew was precipitated by the death of Joseph Kamaru also from Muranga.
