The fate of the passengers, in the Western Kenya-bound bus, was not immediately known although the Kenya Red Cross was quick to take up the rescue efforts.

"PSV Bus reportedly loses control and plunges into a ditch near Kinungi along Nairobi-Nakuru Highway. Response teams are at the scene. Details to follow," KRC said in a tweet on Sunday morning.

At least twenty three people including five children were injured and have since been rushed to Naivasha Referral Hospital for treatment.

The area has also been badly affected by foggy weather, further complicating the rescue mission.

Kinungi has for many years been listed as a black spot and has claimed at least two hundred lives in nasty road accidents.

The rates of accidents have, however, reduced since 2016 after the government put up bumps and a speed limit of 50 kilometers per hour on the section.
