At least 20 people have been reported dead after a bus that was ferrying people to a wedding plunged into River Enziu in Mwingi, Kitui County.

In videos making rounds on social media, the bus was captured shortly before it plunged into the river with passengers screaming for help.

Confirming the incident, Mwingi East Sub-County Police Commander Joseph Yakan said 10 passengers have been rescued.

Reports indicate that the bus was carrying 30 passengers who were members of Mwingi Catholic Church. They were traveling to Nuu area from Mwingi town for a wedding.

According to the sub-county commander,  the accident was caused by water tides that were too strong hence sweeping the bus into the river despite the driver trying to take control of the situation.
