At least 6 people have died in Migori town after a driver of a truck lost control and rammed into motorbikes and vehicles on Saturday morning. 

Several other boda boda riders are still trapped in the wreckage. Nyanza police boss Manasse Musyoka said police have joined in the rescue mission and taken some of the riders who were injured to hospitals.

“We understand a driver or some lorry lost its control and ploughed into a crowd. Very unfortunate,” he said.

Azimio leader Raila Odinga sent his condolence message to the families who lost their loved ones in the tragic accident.

"I offer my deepest sympathies to all those who have lost their loved ones, friends, and colleagues in the tragic accident that occurred this morning at the boda boda stage in Migori town," he said.
