Simba Coach bus passenger dies at Malili photo

Panic grasped Simba Coach bus passengers on Thursday after a passenger died inside the bus at Malili township along the Mombasa-Nairobi highway just two days after a similar incident in Nairobi.

The Simba Coach bus was travelling from Busia to Mombasa. 

The passengers were sleeping in their seats after the bus parked at the shopping centre shortly before 10 pm.

That was due to the curfew enforced by the government to control the spread of the global virus.

"Two hours later, at around midnight, the passenger sleeping next to the man alerted other passengers after realising that he was lifeless," Mr Justus Kitetu, Makueni deputy county police commander said.

A relative said the deceased had reported high fever, the police said.

The occurrence led to confusion as other passengers parachuted out of the bus with their luggage in a haul.

Health executives collected the body, disinfected the bus in line with ministry protocols, and counselled the passengers before the trip allowed to proceed on Friday morning.

"We shall allow them to proceed with their trip," Makueni County Commissioner Mohammed Maalim said.
