A village feast turned tragic after a 45-year-old man from Kamara in Kuresoi North constituency died.
The victim was among dozens of villagers who were rushed to the Londiani sub-county hospital for treatment after eating uninspected meat.
The villagers had eaten the meat of a cow that was ailing from an unidentified disease. County Health Executive Hellen Ng’eno said 11 people were admitted to the health facility, while 13 others were treated and discharged.
“The victims began trickling into the hospital, complaining of severe abdominal pain. They were also vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea.
Those in the wards are in a stable condition and are responding well to treatment,” said Ms Ng’eno.
