21 people have been admitted in critical condition at Kapkatet District Hospital after consuming the signature fermented milk of the Kalenjin Community Mursik.

In a report by Nenyon FM's reporter Martin Kosgei, the 21 all from Cheborgei village in Kericho county. The 21 are said to have bought the milk from a popular vendor who has been fermenting the milk for the area for long.

Few minutes after consuming the milk they complained of stomach upsets and within no time , began vomiting and diarrhea. Since the whole village was affected, alarm was raised forcing them to seek quick medication in the nearby dispensary. They were referred to Kapkatet Hospital where they are being attended to.

Cases of Mursik causing such harm is now turning to be common , many believe the fermentation method is the cause and maybe additives that is added to milk before fermentation. Some vendors use shortcuts to achieve fermentation quicker unlike traditional way where it takes up to 4-5 days.

The police are investigating the incident to understand the cause of the incident.
