Thirty-three students of Kangubiri Girls Secondary School were on Saturday morning injured after a bus ferrying them to Nairobi overturned at Tambaya on Nyeri-Mukurweini road.

The students, who suffered minor injuries, were rushed to Mukurweini and Nyeri County Referral hospitals for treatment.

Mukurweini Hospital Superintendent Kelvin Kibaara told the Nation that two girls were in critical condition after suffering deep cuts.

“They are in stable condition. We received 33 students at 9.30a.m. Two had deep cuts and the rest soft injuries,” said the doctor.

The school principal, Ms Agnes Mathenge, said the students were picked by the Rukagina Sacco bus at the school gate at 9.00 am to head home for their mid-term holiday.

“The bus is owned by one of the parents. The students were picked at the gate because that is our regulation. All were heading to Nairobi,” said Ms Mathenge.
