The controversial bill is likely to become law soon but deportation flights won't take off immediately. Two Eritrean refugees
were killed and six others were seriously injured after they were involved in
a road accident on Kenya's Nakuru-Eldoret highway.
The refugees were
traveling in a minibus-taxi which collided with a stationary truck parked
beside the road.
The injured refugees are
currently receiving treatment in a hospital.
One survivor told the BBC
that the accident happened so suddenly that they could not explain how it
occurred and could not see the lorry parked beside the road.
Several of the refugees
have broken legs, fractured hands and complain of head pains.
According to a police report, the lorry had developed mechanical problems and
was left unattended on the road without any warning signs.
Recently, desperate
Eritrean refugees have set off from Ethiopia on a journey southward aiming for Uganda. They can often pay up to $2,000 (£1,600) in order to make the trip.
In December, five Eritreans who were heading to Uganda from Ethiopia were found dead in a
boat accident on Kenya's Lake Turkana.
Similarly, last month,
four Eritrean refugees were killed in a car accident near Meru, Kenya.
