The Mwingi bus tragedy yesterday caused the death of over 20 people with more news now emerging about the horrific incident.
It is now coming out that a priest from St.James called Fr Benson Kityambu lost 11 nieces in the terrible incident.
This was relayed by the church administration to congregants in the sad WhatsApp message below;
Dear parishioners and friends of St.James, good evening. Allow me to inform you that our Catholic Church choir of the Good shepherd-Mwingi were today involved in a tragic road accident on their way to attend a wedding for Fr Benson Kityambu's brother at Nuu.
As the driver tried to Cross the Enziu river, the St.Josephs Seminary bus lost control and was swept away by the strength of the water. So far we have lost 22 members, some are bodies still being searched, some saved and rushed to Mwingi level 4 hospital. Fr Kityambu has lost 11 nieces. We have also lost two religious brothers who work in seminary. Beloved, let's continue praying for the repose of the souls of the faithful departed.
May the people who have lost their left live, rest in peace.
