Four women have died and 13 other people were seriously injured in Kenya during a crush before an event to celebrate Heroes, or Mashujaa, Day.

The accident occurred outside a stadium in Kericho County in Kenya’s Rift Valley region.

Thousands of Kenyans had camped outside the venue, waiting to be let in by security officers when the crash happened.

Police say that the accident occurred at 06:00 local time (04:00GMT) on Friday, after a woman who was selling tea outside the stadium accidentally spilled tea, triggering fright among the crowd.

Police reports say that the spill caused the crowd to panic as they “mistook it for teargas being thrown at them”, the Daily Nation newspaper reported.

President William Ruto and other political leaders attended the event hours afterwards.

Mashujaa Day celebrates those who fought for independence from British colonial rule.
