The Kericho County government will meet the cost of treatment for 16 survivors of the Fort Ternan crash that left 56 people dead on Wednesday morning.
Governor Paul Chepkwony said they have put in place other measures to support the victims of the accident including directing the waiver of all mortuary costs.
"We have set up a counselling desk of dedicated professional counsellors to help the affected families come to terms with the loss of their loved ones," said the governor.
In collaboration with the Kenya Red Cross, they have also established an information desk and a call centre at the Kericho County Referral Hospital (KCRH) to support efforts by families to identify their loved ones.
