19 students from Thur-Gem High School have been hospitalised at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kisumu after their school bus in which they were travelling got into an accident.
The school bus overturned at Mamboleo, Kisumu, along the Kakamega-Kisumu road on Thursday evening when the students and their four teachers were on their way back to school from an educational trip to Kakamega.
Only form three and form four students were on the bus when the accident happened.
The CEO Jaramog Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital George Rae said 25 of the school bus occupants were in a stable condition and were already discharged on Thursday night.
However, 19 students are still receiving treatment for the injuries they sustained during the accident. 5 of them are reported to have sustained serious injuries.
According to the preliminary report, the bus lost control and overturned after its brakes had failed.
