Mwingi residents have expressed their mistrust in the current regime of government following Saturday's tragedy at river Enziu involving a school bus which plunged into the river while carrying wedding guests.
The locals have made their doubts known after the government promised to construct the bridge in a bid to curb such kind of accidents in future.
While speaking, transport permanent secretary Paul Maringa said that the new bridge to be constructed would cost Ksh 500M to be fully functional.
However, the people of Mwingi couldn't hide their dissatisfaction as they claimed how the government is used to issuing empty promises so that they can cool down only for them to remain in the same state long afterwards.
This shows the level of angriness by the people of Mwingi after 33 lives were lost in the tragedy while several others currently nursing serious injuries at the hospital.
The residents also said that Saturday was not the first time for people in the locality to lose lives in the river as the government watched from a distance without offering any help despite prominent leaders coming from the region.
