Road Accident

Photos Of River Enziu Victims Emerge As Family Narrates About The Tragedy

A wedding ceremony at the centre of the weekend Mwingi bus tragedy had to be hurriedly concluded after the presiding priest was informed of the deadly accident. 

The couple, Mr David Mutua and his wife of five decades Ms Veronica Syombua solemnised their marriage at Nuu Catholic Church but instead of proceeding to a planned wedding reception, rushed to rescue their kin who were swallowed by the swollen Enziu River.

We sensed something changed into amiss, however we have been now not advised until the rite turned into over,” said the 75 12 months antique farmer.

News that the bus, which changed into sporting contributors of the choir, had plunged into the River Enziu stirred the congregation. however Father Peter Kilonzo, the priest officiating the ceremony, pressed on albeit fast.

 He become in steady session with the first-rate men. "The priest moved quickly the wedding and by the point it became over my quality guy had already left the church for the accident scene. At that point it had emerged that my household and some of the choir members had drowned," Mr Mutua said.
