Mudslide Destroys Widow's Home in Kapchorwa

A heavy downpour yesterday caused a mudslide destroying the house of Irene Chemonges, a widow and mother of six. Her two goats also died in the incident. This happened in Kaptokwoi subcounty in Kapchorwa district.

At the time of the incident, Chemonges, who works as a house help for the bishop of Kapchorwa Anglican diocese was at her workplace. Her children escaped harm because they had run off to the neighbour’s house at some point during the storm.

This report was sent to News-Hapa by Alfred Chepsikor, of Kaptokwoi subcounty in Kapchorwa.
