Mwingi Bridge of Death: Painful As Families Of Tragedy Victims Wait To Identify Bodies Of Loved Ones

The painful process of identifying bodies of loved ones from the Enziu river tragedy is currently ongoing at the Mwingi hospital mortuary.

The latest development comes barely hours after Catholic Church in Mwingi is expected to hold a special Mass on 9th Dec in honour of the 32 people who perished on River Enziu in Nguni on Saturday.

The families of the departed souls thronged the mortuary early Wednesday morning waiting eagerly for the mortuary attendants to open the door.

Police said atleast 33 people were found dead following the Saturday Mwingi bus tragedy.

As rescuers and KDF rescue team chipped in searching for survivors, they found choir uniforms, shoes, a hymn book and weeding tools.

On Sunday at 3pm the first NYS crane was brought.

A second crane came in after the first one was unable to pull the bus out of the water. It was stuck in the mud.

The victims were heading for a planned wedding ceremony which failed to take place at Nuu-Mwingi following the tragedy.

May Lord our God rest their souls in eternal peace.
