Two persons were killed when a school bus carrying worshippers slammed over market stalls in Ekerenyo, Nyamira County, on Thursday, December 29, in the evening.
On order to get to Nakuru for an end-of-year spiritual retreat, members of the Repentance and Holiness church were being transported there in a bus owned by Moi Suba Girls Secondary when it lost control and rammed through the stalls after hitting a culvert.
Numerous people were hurt in the accident, according to the authorities.
Patrick Ngeiywa, the head of the Nyamira North Sub-County Police, confirmed the occurrence and stated that at least 52 people were riding the doomed bus at the time of the tragedy.
Days prior to the catastrophe, a Modern Coast bus carrying 43 passengers from Mombasa to Homabay skidded into a ditch in Kisii.
The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) reports that between January 1 and December 13 of this year, 4,432 road users have lost their lives in collisions.
The biggest number of fatalities, 433 and 487, were recorded in January and July, respectively.
