20 choir members perish after school bus capsizes
It was a very disheartening scene where 20 choir members die after a school bus capsized at Enziu River in Kitui County. The people that boarded the bus were seen to sing as they waited for the River water to go down. Although, when they boarded the bus again and tried to cross the river, the bus swayed and capsized.

He also mentioned that they are working tirelessly to recover the missing bodies. The school bus was fully submerged in water. The residents of the area watched helplessly as the school bus drowned.
