Assistant minister for Environment Julius Murgor has urged the government to issue relief food to the families affected by mudslides in Kapenguria.
Speaking in Kitale town, the MP said more than 300 families from Chongiss and Kaipawis villages lost everything. The tragedy took place two weeks ago.
Murgor said he has contributed blankets and food staffs to the families, but they need government intervention. The West Pokot senator aspirant asked school heads not to send home students from the affected families for lack of school fees.
"Pokot South DC and I have written to all the heads advising them not to send the students home," said Murgor.
The MP also asked the government to help resettle the affected families at safer grounds.
He said the families lost everything including land. The families are now living in temporary tents at Tatach division in pokot south district after their displacement. Medical officers at the nearby dispensary are taking care of the displaced families in the area.
