Many feared that the bus was ferrying students but reports emerged that the bus was full of choir members who were headed for a wedding.

The thirty choir members from Mwingi Catholic Church plunged into their doom at the river that was raging with floods.

The driver had been cautioned to not cross but went against the wishes of the people that were standing by the river waiting for the waters to abate before they could cross.

According to the latest reports, 17 people out of the thirty that were in the bus are said to have drowned in the river.

Ten people have so far been rescued while a search for the remaining people goes on in River Enziu.

This comes barely days after a similar tragedy happened in Embu where 15 people lost their lives when the bus they were in plunged into a river.
