Road Accident

Hii Ilifanya Kina Mama Kuaga" Why Women Died Faster Than Men In Mwingi Bus Tragedy

According to Mwingi East Sub-County Commander Joseph Yakan, the driver of the bus was attempting to drive the vehicle past a flooded bridge when water tides overpowered the vehicle, sweeping it into the river.

The ODM leader also appealed to the same authorities to reach out to the affected families and offer a helping hand about burial and hospital expenses for those undergoing treatment without excluding those affected in Bondo, Siaya County.

Women died faster because of their drinking a lot of water as they were screaming while in water, reports indicated.

It is nearly four days since the tragic accident in Mwingi where a bus full of people headed for a wedding plunged into a flooded River Enziu killing 32.

Media also reported that the bus driver, Br. Stephen Kang’ethe, a member of the religious order the Brothers of St. Peter Claver, had waited two hours before deciding to attempt crossing the river. Kang’ethe and his fellow religious, Br. Kenneth Wanzala Okinda, have both been confirmed dead.
