Ms Achieng' and her five kids are recovering at Migori County Referral Hospital in the wake of losing their visual perception. 

Six individuals from a family in Migori County have gone visually impaired in a strange occurrence that has left occupants of Thim Jope town in Uriri Sub County in shock. 

A lady and her four kids, matured somewhere in the range of seven and 24 years were hurried to Migori County Referral Hospital for treatment. 

A 12-year-old kid from similar family lost his vision and passed on in muddled conditions at home. 

Mr George Omondi said his significant other and five kids were healthy when they hit the hay on Friday. The six grumbled that they couldn't see on Saturday morning. 

He said his 12 year old nephew, who lives with his family, lost his sight before he began shaking, fallen and kicked the bucket. 

"My significant other and every one of the kids were healthy when we hit the hay on Friday night. I just understood that my whole family had gone visually impaired on Saturday morning," said Mr Omondi. 

Thim Jope Sub-Location Assistant Chief Kerry Otieno affirmed the occurrence. 

"The casualties woke up having lost their vision. The occurrence is very astounding and we are yet to set up what might have occurred. The twelve year old kid passed on by early afternoon and his body has been moved to Ombo Mission Hospital funeral home," said Mr Otieno. 

The family had before welcomed otherworldly pioneers for petitions before the six were hurried to clinic for treatment. Specialists at the medical clinic were all the while attempting to set up the reason for the patients' deficiency of sight. 

"I have never seen such an occurrence, the matter ought to be completely explored and fitting activity taken to keep away from a rehash of a comparative episode," said a neighbor, Ms Meressa Ochieng.
