Nairobi — 41 people died and 33 others were seriously injured after a bus rolled at Ntulele a few kilometres from Narok Town on August 29 on the Nairobi-Narok road.
According to Kenya's Daily Nation newspaper, the bus was travelling to Homa Bay from Nairobi when the accident occurred at around 1am.
"The driver failed to negotiate a sharp corner at Pinyinyi at around 1am," said Narok police boss Patterson Maelo.
"He (driver) lost control of the vehicle and it rolled several times."
The injured are receiving treatment at Narok District Hospital.
President Kenyatta vowed stern action saying the vehicle owners are to blame for the accident and they must bear responsibility.
"We are going to take action now, not just against the drivers but even the car owners themselves.
"We are losing too many Kenyans through road accidents and the onus is us as car owners, as commuters, as traffic police and as leaders," said the President.
He said public service vehicle owners will also be charged alongside the drivers since they should always ensure the PSVs are well maintained.
The President mourned the dead and wished those admitted to hospital a full and speedy recovery.
"Our condolences to the families of 37 people confirmed dead in an accident at Ntulele, Narok County. May God be with you all," he said on Twitter.
"Govt will assist victims who survived the Ntulele, Narok accident."
