Tragedy Strikes Kenya as 56 People Died Due to Accident Caused by Bad Roads


Yesterday's crash that left 56 people dead brought back a familiar tale of pain, negligence and impunity on Kenyan roads. 


Even the shell of the bus that was shredded by the impact of the crash and that lay in an open field strewn with luggage, twisted metal and bodies had a sense of deja vu. 

The reactions too, had a ring of familiarity: Official condolences, promises of stern action, and silence.



According to The Standard, Dozens of kilometres away, survivors of the dawn accident that occurred at Tunnel on the Muhoroni-Londiani highway recounted their ordeal. 

Still in shock, many spoke of their pleas to the bus driver to slow down on a journey that appeared to have been doomed from the start. Others sank to their knees in prayer, thankful to have survived through a last-minute change of travel plans. 

Friends and relatives searched frantically for their loved ones at the accident scene, hospitals and morgues.

The bus named 'Home Boyz' is owned by Western Cross Express Company Ltd and was heading to Kakamega from Nairobi.
