All the 65 passengers on board managed to escape unhurt, while the driver Kasim Kayimbi took off after the incident. One of the passengers on board said that they heard a loud noise after the bus hit humps. Thereafter, they saw blak smoke and all passengers rushed out. The driver took off just before the bus burst into flames. Nobody was hurt however most of the luggage was lost in the flames.
This is not the first time Gaagaa buses have been involved in accidents. Last year, the bus’ services were suspended by the ministry of transport following 3 fatal accidents. The bus’ drivers were put on a training programme and the company told to buy new buses. The bus that burst into flames was one of the new buses.
