Road Accident

RIP: Father in Pain as He Narrates How He Lost 2 Weeks Old Baby in Mwingi Bus Tragedy

A 2 weeks old baby is among the more than 30 people who died in the Mwingi bus tragedy on Saturday afternoon.

Makau, the father to the baby narrated while fighting back tears at the morgue during the body identification process that his wife and baby are among the travellers who had been stranded at swollen River Enziu for hours. 

When his wife heard that the bus was crossing to the other side, she asked for a lift hoping to get home safely but she died in the accident with their baby.

The stranded travellers are said to have paid 50 Kenyan shillings to board the bus.

Local drivers had earlier asked them to pay 200 Kenyan shillings to be crossed safely.

The bus driver had been hesitant to cross for fear of the raging waters but after other vehicles crossed safely, he gave in to pressure.

May the souls lost in the accident continue resting in peace and may God comfort the families.
