Two children have died after they were attacked by a hippopotamus at the Siungu Uhwaya beaches in Bondo on Wednesday.
Siungu Beach Management Unit secretary Erick Ochieng Nyatumba said the children were taking bath on the shores of the lake when they were attacked by the marauding hippo.
Mr. Ochieng told Radio Ramogi had attacked two boys; one in Class One and a Class 8 pupil.
The Class 8 pupil who had been bitten on the stomach was rushed to the Got Agulu Health Centre where he was pronounced dead.
Residents now want the Government through the KWS to intervene and resolve the Hippo menace amid claims that the animals have been straying into people’s farms and homesteads.
