Three students from Karen’s Co-operative University College of Kenya students are feared dead after a matatu which they were hanging onto during student union campaigns at the campus lost control.

A video clip being shared on Twitter shows a group of students clinging rowdily onto a matatu while others ride on the vehicle’s roof, shortly before the bus driver loses control while turning a corner.

Reports claim several severely injured students were rushed to the Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment following the incident.
