The five people have been admitted to the Molo Sub County hospital after the bus they were travelling in was involved in an accident in the Sachangwan area along the Nakuru-Eldoret Highway.

Molo OCPD Mwenda Muthamia in an interview revealed that the bus driver lost control of the vehicle which resulted in the accident.

“A school bus ferrying civilians to Nairobi from the Western region has landed in a ditch at Salgaa. Five passengers are being attended to at the Molo hospital,” said Muthamia.

He said that it was not immediately clear how many passengers were on board the bus at the time of the accident.

“The passengers who were on board disembarked safely except those who had to be rescued. Only one has a serious injury while four are slightly injured,” said Muthamia.

The bus belonged to St Johan The Baptist Likuyani Boys High School, a facility ran by Catholic Diocese of Kakamega.

Rachel Maru, a first responder said that passengers who escaped unhurt mingled with other onlookers.

“We attended to some of them who are in hospital. We believe most of those who were unhurt proceeded with their journey using other means,” said Maru.

Meanwhile, defeated Presidential candidate in the 2022 elections, Raila Odinga has revealed that he’s not attending the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect William Ruto.
