George Omondi who is the father told Nation that his 12-year-old nephew who was living together with his family started convulsing after loosing his eyesight too. The boy later collapsed and died.
Omondi revealed that on 26th of November 2021, his family which consists of his wife and their five children went to bed while in good health. However, it was unfortunate that while walking up the following morning, they were all complaining that they could not see.
The boy who had died was taken to Ombo Mission Hospital mortuary. The authorities at Thim Jope village claims that they are yet to establish what could have happened to the family. Before the family was rushed to the hospital, they had invited some spiritual leaders to intervene but their moves did not bore fruits. At the hospital ,the doctors are still trying to find the reason why the family had lost their eyesight.
Kenyans consoled with the family while wishing them quick recovery. Others argued that the family might have consumed something that contains ethanol while others claimed that it might be witchcraft.
