Two people struck to death by lightning in Bungoma

  • 24-year-old Fransisca Wabomba and 13-year-old Valery Naliaka, a Class Six pupil, had just come from the posho mill and decided to take shelter in the house of their elder brother before they met their untimely death. 

A family in Malaha village, Bungoma County is grieving after two of their family members were struck dead by lightning on Sunday evening. 

24-year-old Fransisca Wabomba and 13-year-old Valery Naliaka, a Class Six pupil, had just come from the posho mill and decided to take shelter in the house of their elder brother before they met their untimely death. 

The lighting that struck during a heavy downpour first struck the main house before getting to the kitchen where the three were.

Francisca's six months old baby miraculously escaped unhurt as she was found seated on top of her bed.  

The incident is said to be the second one to happen in the homestead after a similar one in 2018 that left one person from the family dead.

The bodies of the deceased were moved to Webuye County Hospital mortuary.
