44 passengers narrowly escaped death after a matatu they boarded was swept by waters of River Kyamela along Emaili – Ukia Road.
The matatu was ferrying 40 university students and 4 staff from Lukenya university to Nairobi.
The vehicle had diverted from Mombasa – Nairobi Highway avoiding a snarl-up following an accident.
Makueni county police commander Joseph Napeiyan says all passengers are safe.
The Matatu is still in the water.
