WHAT ROGERS KIRYA SAYS ON KNOCKING TEDDY SEEZI CHEEYE
Rogers Kirya works from the Spear Motors Junction stage.
When the traffic lights signalled green, I rode, but I didn’t see anyone crossing until he had rammed into my motorcycle and we all fell down.
I was helped by people I didn’t know to get off the road.
Those who helped me, advised me to run away from arrest.
I had even failed to start my motorcycle, but they kick-started it and pushed me onto the motorcycle and told me to hurry away.
I didn’t know that I had knocked someone dead..
