Kenya: Locals Shun Six Over Jiggers

Murang'a South DC Ali Muktar has ordered a family hospitalised after villagers of Murang'a Range threatened to kick them out for fear they might infest the locals with jiggers.

Harrison Mwaura, 38, his wife Martha Wambui, 33, and their four children were taken by a good Samaritan to the DC's compound at Kenol.
