Eight people have been confirmed dead in a grisly road accident that occurred in Maai Mahiu along the Nairobi- Narok highway in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
This is after the bus they were travelling in was involved in a head-on collision with a lorry.
Nakuru traffic base police commander Beatrice Kuraguri told the Star the bus was carrying mourners from Kisii and was on its way to Naivasha.
“Of the 8 confirmed dead, four are women and four men. The 8 died on the spot,” Kuraguri told the Star on phone.
The lorry was heading to Narok.
Four other people who were part of the mourners are in a coma as a result of the accident.
Another four survived with injuries.
The injured survivors are receiving treatment at a Naivasha hospital.
