At least 50 people were killed when a bus travelling from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, to Kisumu, in the west, veered off the road, police say.

The bus was overloaded and speeding, a survivor told local media.

Police said the driver lost control and the vehicle plunged down a slope at a notorious accident black spot. The roof was ripped off.

Twelve women and seven children were among those killed in the crash on Wednesday morning.

The bus was carrying at least 70 passengers, some standing, a male survivor told The Standard.
