The driver was alone in the vehicle and was headed to Takaba from Mandera town along the newly tarmacked Rhamu-Elwak road when the explosion happened on Monday.
Lafey Deputy County Commissioner Eric Oronyi, while confirming the incident, said the Toyota Land Cruiser was slightly damaged but the driver was not injured.
“The driver reported that while along the highway between Chabi and Bamboo villages, he saw a suspicious heap of soil on the road and as he swerved it exploded,” said Mr Oronyi.
According to Mr Oronyi, the explosion shuttered the cars windscreen and caused a tyre burst.
“The driver did not stop despite the tire burst until he reached the nearest police post because he feared for the worst,” Mr Oronyi said.
The administrator said security agencies have since been deployed in the area to search for those who may have planted the explosive.
He said security agencies are doing everything to address the increasing cases of planting of explosives on the newly tarmacked Mandera-Rhamu-Elwak road.
“We are increasing our security patrols to flush out the usual suspects. I urge road users to continue with their businesses because the situation is under control,” he said.
