Eight mourners died on Friday night after a van they were travelling in was involved in an accident along the Mai Mahiu-Narok Highway.

The five women and three men were returning to Naivasha from Kisii County when their mini-bus rammed head-on into a lorry near Mafuta Taa centre.

The eight are believed to be flower farm workers who were on their way back from the burial before the 2 am accident occurred.

He said that seven of the victims died on the spot while one passed on while undergoing treatment.

“We have lost eight people after the mini-bus driver veered off his lane and rammed into a lorry heading in the opposite direction,” he said.
