11 people were killed in a road crash on Saturday after a 14-seater Matatu veered off the road and rolled near the Kanyonyo junction in Kitui.
Area assistant chief Jacob Mueti confirmed the 11pm accident, sayng the matatu was ferrying people who were coming from a dowry negotiation ceremony in Mwingi.
He said the matatu lost control as it attempted to overtake another vehicle.
The bodies of those who succumbed were moved to the Kitui Level 4 Hospital Mortuary.
At the same time, several passengers who sustained injuries are receiving treatment at the same facility as well as Matuu Level 4 Hospital in Machakos, and the Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi.
