Ongoing El Niño rains have claimed another life in Kenyan’s Kericho county. Grief gripped Kapnandet village in Belgut constituency after raging waters from Kipsululu river which has burst its banks swept off a middle-aged man. Kipkoyan location acting chief Nelson Siele, said the deceased, Samuel Tonui went missing Thursday night only for his frozen body to be recovered in the morning trapped along the river by weeds. It is suspected the deceased lost his footing as he attempted to cross the local footbridge and fell in to the flood waters and drowned.
