Kitui, 07 December, 2021 / 10:51 am (ACI Africa).
Kenya’s Catholic Diocese of Kitui is facilitating counselling services at one of its Parishes following the Saturday, December 4 bus tragedy that claimed lives of at least 30 people, the Local Ordinary of the Diocese has said.
The counselling services are being offered at Good Shepherd Mwingi Parish where the ill-fated bus had come from, with members of St. Cecilia choir and flower girls aboard.
In an interview with Thome Radio of the Catholic Diocese of Kitui, Bishop Joseph Mwongela said counselling services were being offered to “all affected people” following the tragedy that involved St. Joseph Minor Seminary bus.
A video footage seen by ACI Africa shows the driver of the Seminary bus, later identified as Br. Stephen Kang'ethe, attempting to navigate a submerged bridge. The bus plunged into River Enziu, a seasonal river in Kitui County.
Two members of Brothers of St. Peter Claver, over 20 members of St. Cecilia choir, and some flower girls who were joining other wedding invitees at St. Joseph Nuu Parish of Kitui Diocese were among those who lost their lives.
