    RIP my brother. So many excuses about bushes and vegetation around the roads one has to drive according to the road condition. On a wet road one must drive with more care and attention slow down brothers on these winding roads

    Those who drive in the area for the past two weeks would sympathised with the driver of the vehicle. The vegetations are so high that you have no safe distance or braking distance. Even the telephone posts are obscured. The bushes are so high that he could not have seen any cow or human coming out of the bushes.

      Then obviously, if the road is obscured for safety reasons he should reduce his speed. I am in no way saying that he was speeding. However, if he knocks that man hard enough and his excuse is that he was unaware of what he hit then where was he looking or what was he paying attention to? Condolences to the family of the deceased. And kudos to the driver for staying on the scene.
