Kenya's musician commonly known as Akothee has broken her silence hours after the Mwingi tragedy where 23 were confirmed dead. Akothee took it to social media to express her grief after the death of the Muitui Mutheo Parish choir members who were traveling to attend a wedding ceremony before the tragedy struck.

The teary Akothee said that she lacked the best words to describe the accident. "Painful is an understatement,," she said. Akothee expressed her deep sorrow and pity for the affected families and friends after the heartbreaking ordeal at Enziu River.

She sent her condolences to the families and friends of the deceased and prayed for those who were rescued for a quick recovery from their pain, injuries and the trauma they went through while trapped inside the bus which plunged into the river due to the river's strong currents.

Kenyans joined Akothee in mourning the death of the 23 victims while consoling the bereaved families. Out of the 23 passengers who lost their lives, 15 are said to be from one family. Akothee consoled the families wishing them strength and inner peace as they mourn the loss of their loved one.

It is reported that the bridge which the driver was trying to cross has rugged edges and that he was new on the road.
