Pastor dies in Migori after tent collapsed on him



A pastor died in Migori county after a tent toppled on him during a night vigil attended by mourners at Ongoche village in Nyatike.

They had pitched the tent at the home to condole with the family who had lost their kin earlier in the week.

As the evening progressed, the tent was cast off its moorings by strong winds and ended up burying the pastor in a mess of canvas and metal.

He succumbed to his injuries before he got to the Migori Level Four Hospital where he was being rushed. His body was moved to the Migori Level Four Hospital Mortuary.

Nyatike sub-county Police Commander Stella Too said the incidents were not reported but said officers were conducting investigations.

She threatened legal action on those found holding outlawed night vigils, saying it’s unfortunate that people are still sneaking to night events which have been banned by the Government.
