Four IDPs die of cold in Subukia

19 May 2015, 11:20 Jackson Okata

Subukia - Four internally displaced persons from Mumoi area in Subukia have died due to cold-related diseases.

IDPs chairman, Peter Kariuki said that the four have died from cold-related complications.

Addressing the press in Nakuru town Monday, Kariuki said that four IDPs have died in a span of three weeks.

“The number may increase since we have others who are in hospital,” said Kariuki adding that this is a result of the heavy rains being experienced countrywide.

He said that among those affected were infants and old people who had contracted pneumonia, cold and flu, noting that they were in urgent need of proper shelter, food and clothing as the county government had neglected them.

“We are calling on the county to relocate us as a matter of emergency. Apart from leaking and torn tents, we have people who cannot work as they are too sick to be moved,” said Kariuki.

According to Kariuki, only 4 000 families had so far been relocated.

Subukia Member of Parliament, Nelson Gaichuhie called on both the county and national governments to find ways of resettling the IDPs who have been at the camp since 2010.

“We have been talking about this issue for long now and it is time the government did something to avert more deaths. If all the other IDPs were resettled, why not resettle these ones?” wondered Gaichuhie.
