A witness told City News that the elderly man was knocked down by a motorist, while trying to cross the road and died on the way to the hospital.
A food seller along the 16/16 way, who gave her name as Happy, however, said that the man stopped breathing on the spot but was taken to a hospital where he was confirmed dead.
When our reporter visited the family of the deceased, his relatives were seen crying uncontrollably while a hospital ambulance brought in his corpse.
A woman, who claimed to be a member of his family, described the deceased as a complete gentleman, who related well with everybody in the area.
Meanwhile, the people of Bwari, especially those residing along the SCC road, have described as insensitive the attitude of the council authorities to their plights.
A resident, Mary Ahmed, said several promises made by the council authorities to liaise with relevant authorities to put speed breakers at strategic locations along the road have not been fulfilled.
She said when a man, who was also going to his farm was killed while crossing the road at Peyi section last year, the council chairman came to make similar promises but nothing has been done since then.
Another resident, John Ndako, said many people have been killed while crossing the road and nothing has been done to address the situation.
It would be recalled that an elderly woman was recently killed at Dutsen Makaranta along the same road, while about eight school children narrowly escaped death when their school bus was rammed into at Bwari.
