Four people lost their lives following a grisly road accident between Walda and Rawana in Moyale Constituency last night.

Several others were injured in the head-on collision involving a Toyota Noah and Moyale Raha Bus.

Two of the dead are members of the same family; Mr. Jara Shege and his daughter Fatu.

The third fatality is their driver while the fourth is a police officer.

The family members were headed to a funeral in Manyatta Burji while the bus was from Mandera, headed to Nairobi.

It is common to see buses from Mandera going to Nairobi through Moyale because of the tarmacked Moyale Isiolo highway.

The Toyota car has visibly been pushed for meters and was partially trapped under the bus.

Terrified eyewitnesses and first responders say that it was difficult to retrieve the bodies at night.

The attached photos of the mangled wreckage tell the tale of the agonizing accident.

The dead family members have been buried at the Moyale-Ethiopia Cemetery.

Hon. Solomon Gubo Riwe, the Deputy Governor Marsabit County condoling with the family in Moyale today.
