Meanwhile in a separate article on Citizen TV residents of Isebania town in Migori County have expressed fear over a possible cholera outbreak due to poor sanitation in the town.
The town which lies on the border of Kenya and Tanzania is reported to be littered with uncollected garbage.
“Sometimes the garbage stays for more than two months without being collected. We are worried of a possible cholera outbreak in the region if relevant authorities fail to reinforce sanitation,” said a resident, Thomas Chacha.
