'Mambo Ya Kitui Ni Ngumu Kuelewa' Mike Sonko Says Just Two Days After The Mwingi Tragedy

Kenyans are still in deep shock after more than 33 people perished at Mwingi, Kitui County after the bus they were traveling on was swept by floods as it crossed river Enziu.

They were headed to a wedding which did not take place but instead the joy which was to be was replaced with deep sorrow and mourning after many lives perished.

Majority of the casualties were choir members which belonged to Mwingi catholic church and the rest were friends and relatives of the people getting married.

But as fate would have it, they were swept by the river and just few of them managed to escape alive on the midmorning of Saturday, 4th December of 2021.

The ill-fated bus was retrieved from the river by dusk of the following Sunday and the bodies of the deceased take to mortuary.

But to the shock of former Nairobi governor, a video leaked online on Sunday in which tractors could be seen crossing the river while the bus was still at the banks.

The water was totally reduced and almost non-existent. But sadly, on the same spot lives were lost just a few hours earlier. The video made the politician to comment by saying it's hard to fathom Kitui events. 'Mambo ya Kitui Ni Ngumu Kuelewa' he said
