Musyoki Musyoka lost his sight and two fingers on his right arm after he was attacked by a black mamba while asleep. He was treated at Mwingi Level Iv hospital. [Philip Muasya, Standard]

One evening in March 2013, Stephen Kilonzo aged nine, drove the family’s livestock to the grazing fields where he joined his mates at Mwasuma village, Mwingi East sub-county.
