A family is in grief after two of their kin drowned in a river.

The family living at Got Kokech village in Homa Bay Sub-county lost two sons, a Forth Year university student and another in Form Four.

The students drowned in River Rang’wena on Thursday evening.

One was expected to graduate at Egerton University while the other was waiting to sit his KCSE exams at Wikoteng’ Secondary School.

East Kanyada Location Chief John Akado said passersby became suspicious after spotting clothes and slippers abandoned on the river bank.

"They (villagers) raised alarm prompting divers to jump into the river and retrieve the bodies,” he said.
