Buses washed away by Kenyan floods killing at least 20 people-SABC News

According to the governor, at least 20 people were drowned when a bus carrying a group of religious believers was flooded as a driver tried to cross a river in Kitui County, eastern Kenya.

Many parts of East African countries have experienced unusually heavy rainfall over the past week. At least 17 people were rescued after the bus was washed away on the Enjiu River, according to Governor Charity Ngilu.

“The tragedy this afternoon struck Kitui County,” she wrote on Twitter, adding that rescue operations were being carried out by Kenyan Red Cross and security agency officials.

A yellow bus was shown in the video broadcast on the local Citizen TV. On the side was a brand indicating that he belonged to a local seminary, running towards a swollen river while a crowd of locals watched.

After that, the bus is seen disappearing into the sea on the way, causing desperate mourning among the onlookers.
