Road Accident

VIDEO: Several Feared Drowned After Bus with 30 Passengers Heading to a Wedding Plunges Into River

Several people are feared to have died after a bus they had boarded plunged into a river in Kitui County.

According to the source, the bus had at least 30 passengers who were heading to a wedding before it plunged into River Enziu.

The said 30 victims are members of Mwingi Catholic Church.

It is being said the bus driver ignored the advice from other road users who told him it was dangerous for the bus to cross over the river with passengers on boars.

Onlookers who broke into wailing after the bus plunged into the river were heard lamenting that the driver had ignored to take safety measures thus leading to the accident.

"Basi ni tofauti an lori, you cannot, na nimwambia huyu jamaa basi litasombwa na maji," one witness said, which loosely translates to

(A bus is not like a lorry, you cannot do that, I told the man this bus is going to be swept away)
