The heartbreaking incident happened as students were travelling from school to Nairobi for the April holidays.

Joseph was among the pupils travelling from Chavakali High School to Nairobi in an Easy Coach bus.

But tragedy struck when the bus was involved in a horrific accident at the Mambo Leo flyover on the Kakamega-Kisumu highway.

The accident claimed the life of Joseph and left his family and the nation in deep shock and grief.

Kareh B, Joseph’s grieving mother, recounted how she received the devastating news the morning after the accident when her son did not reach home like his peers.

“I did not sleep and at midnight I checked social media and saw that there had been an accident involving Chavakali students. At 5am, parents started picking up their children and I kept my hopes high. I started losing hope when it was 6.30am and my son was still not there,” Kareh B recalled in an interview with Citizen TV.

Describing the harrowing ordeal, Kareh B revealed that some parents were not informed about the decision to travel at night, a departure from the usual practice.

She learned of the accident through social media updates, highlighting the agony of waiting for news of her son’s fate.

“I asked one of the teachers who was there when the accident happened. They told me that those with minor injuries were given phones to tell their parents that they were in hospital,” she added.

Joseph, a Form Four student, had aspirations of becoming a pilot and was passionate about basketball, his mother said, reflecting on his dreams and the void left by his untimely death.
