Elephant kills 2 villagers in Kwale

Three people were trampled to death by elephants in different incidents in Kwale and Laikipia districts at the weekend.

 

In Kinango, Kwale District, two people from the same family were trampled on separately. Mwanakombo Mkallah, 25, was fetching firewood outside her house when the animal attacked her.

 

Mdzomba Ndoro, 28, was killed by an elephant on the evening of the same day while he was coming home from Mombasa with Mwanakombo’s husband, Mr Nyamawi Nyae at Mwabila.

 

Villagers claimed the elephant is among those that the Kenya Wildlife Service was moving from Mwalughanje Elephant Sanctuary.

 

Area councillor, Mr Khamis Benzao, feared the animal would kill more residents if it is not killed immediately. Tourism and Wildlife minister, Mr Morris Dzoro, condoled with the bereaved families and urged the residents not to venture out of their homes to avoid attack.

 

The delay by the provincial administration and KWS officials to respond to the emergency was blamed on heavy rains pounding the area.

Kwale district warden, Mr John Kagwi, said the elephant had been shot dead by KWS personnel.
