- Lukas Abdala is said to have moved to Tanzania at the age of 19 after his father died

- There, a good Samaritan paid for his driving course

- He finally returned to Kenya while at the age of 25

- He was then employed as a driver at the Kenya Pipeline Company

- He later worked for four other companies before working for the Homeboyz bus

- He has left behind 3 sons and 22 daughters and several wives

The driver of the ill-fated Homeboyz bus that killed 58 people along the Kisumu - Muhoroni Highway on Wednesday, October 10 has left behind 25 children.

Lukas Abdala, 72 , is said to have worked for Matunda Bus Company and resigned three days before getting a job with the bus which belonged to Western Cross Express.

Residents of Mago village in Vihiga County, where Abdala came from, said he had worked as a driver for nearly 50 years and had never been involved in an accident, the Standard reported.

Those who knew the 72-year-old driver said he never drank and was a man of few words and was not only raising his children but those of his late brother to.

According to Chogo who also said Abdala had only 3 sons and 22 daughters, his death was a bad omen because he was their breadwinner.

He had married several women and at the time of his death he was living in Kisumu with his last wife and had a child in Form Four, another in Form Three, and one at Sigalagala National Polytechnic.

The father of 25 is said to have moved to Tanzania at the age of 19 after his father died and a good Samaritan paid for him to attend driving school.

Abdala remained in Tanzania until he was 25, when he returned to Kenya and got a job with Kenya Pipeline Company as a driver.

He then worked for at least four other bus companies before taking up duties on the ill-fated Homebyz bus which was registered under Western Cross Express Company.
