  • 50 people dead in bus crash in western Kenya

The bus was reportedly travelling from Nairobi to the western town of Kakamega, with 52 passengers on board.

Emergency personnel and security forces inspect the wreckage of a bus at the site of an accident in Kericho, western Kenya, on 10 October 2018. The accident occurred around 4am (local time) and seven children were among the dead, he added.

"The initial report we have is that the driver lost control of the vehicle", police officer James Mugera told Reuters at the scene.

Official statistics show that around 3,000 people die annually in road accidents in Kenya, but the World Health Organization estimates the figure could be as high as 12,000.

President Uhuru Kenyatta posted a message on his Twitter page offering "heartfelt condolences to the families of fellow Kenyans who lost their lives in a tragic road accident at Fort Ternan in Kericho County this morning". In the 2015 Global Status Report on Road Safety, the World Health Organisation said Kenyan roads are among the most unsafe in the world, claiming around 29.1 lives per 100,000 people.

In 2013, the government re-introduced breathalyzers, but had to remove them again after court orders barred police from charging drivers using readings from the devices as evidence.

Last December, some 36 people died in a head-on collision between a lorry and a Nairobi-bound bus on a road near Migaa in Kenya.

In 2016, several vehicles were engulfed in flames in a crash involving an oil tanker in Naivasha, Kenya, which killed dozens of people.
