A man of Sudanese descent who recently travelled to Eldoret to visit his wife has died after consuming poisonous herbs which had been prepared as remedy for inability to sire children according to a Facebook post by Nation.
A brother to the deceased told Nation that the man recently travelled from Australia and has been visiting them severally. “His family has been having issues and at some point they needed to have children,” he said. They therefore decided to consult an herbalist to solve the ‘infertility’ problem.
The ‘self-proclaimed’ herbalist therefore boiled some herbs and administered the concoction to the two. In the morning today the late began complaining of frequent episodes of diarrhea and vomiting. They ferried him to hospital but was however pronounced dead on arrival.
Herbs are a popular remedy for a number of diseases in our African societies but their efficacy and safety has not been substantively established. It is therefore imperative for people with health problems to consult qualified medical experts.
May he rest in peace. Watch the video here https://fb.watch/8QZUIKvre8/.
