A bus carrying over 30 Catholic faithfuls has drown into a flooded river.
The bus was carrying members of a church choir to a wedding ceremony.
When the bus got to bridge in the Enziu River, about 200km (125 miles) east of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, it was obvious crossing would be difficult.
The driver hired by the church choir members decided to cross the fast flowing water and unfortunately the water swept it away.
21 people have been confirmed dead, 4 of whom are children with 17 people rescued alive.
