More details have continued coming up following the Mwingi drowning incident which has left many in total disbelief. The rescue mission is still in progress since it's not clear how many people were in the bus at the time. This is because when the driver wanted to cross, he asked more people to join the bus in order to increase it's weight.
During that time, we had see divers who were helping people to cross at Ksh200. However, when the driver offered to help them at Ksh50 only, many of them rushed for the opportunity. Little did they know that death was smiling as they approached the middle of the bridge as it marked their ending.
Many people overloaded the bus in order to cross the water to the other side before it turned into a mystery. The filled the bus until some had no space to sit which made some of them to stand. It was so heartbreaking to see the bus land in the water like a joke.
