'We Warned The Driver But He Ignored Us' Eye Witnesses on The Bus That Plunged In Mwingi River

Kenyans are saddened by the news of the choir Members from Mwingi who perished as their bus was swept away by floods at Mwingi on Saturday mid morning.

It is reported that more than 30 members of a Catholic church were headed to a wedding and as they were to cross a river, they found if flooded due to the heavy rains which have been in the country for some days.

The driver of the bus waited by the roadside for close to two hours for the waters to cool down and during that time, the choir members took the opportunity to dance and rehearse for their show which was to take place on the other side.

The driver witnessed two Lories cross the river safely and he thought it was safe for him to do the same. However, other road users and residents warned him not to cross the river.

In a video clip doing rounds online, some eye witnesses are heard saying that they tried reasoning with the driver that a bus is not like a lorry and they warned him not to drive in the waters since it was not safe for him.

Some people actually told him to drop his passengers and cross over alone when he persistent to move on but he ignored their warnings.

'Tulimwambia Basi sio kama Lori lakini Hakusikia'. The men are heard speaking on the clip.
