An eyewitness pointed out that the accident happened around 8pm when the driver of the matatu swerved to avoid hitting an oncoming bodaboda, only to roll several times.

The passengers in the matatu are said to have been returning from Eldoret where they had attended the passing-out parade that was presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

While the passengers with severe injuries were rushed to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, those with minor injuries were taken to the Nandi Hills Hospital.

The bodies of the diseased were taken to a moruary in Kapsabet.
