The afternoon rains left massive destruction across the land as the hailstones tore crops especially tea which is the predominant cash crop in the area.
Immediately after the rains, photos circulated in social media displaying the massive white stones from the clouds widely spread across the area.
Hailstones destroy crops especially the leaves by bruising it through constant and fast drops.
"Wah wah wah... We have been left devasted by these hailstones," posted Mr Hillary Kirui, a resident of the area.
The farmers will be left with little to salvage except to be patient for some time for their crops to regain their vegetative growth and hope that the unfortunate incident won't recur any time soon again.
Here are some of the photos in circulation.
