A Kakamega family that lost its loved ones in the horrific Kericho accident has linked their deaths to witchcraft after it emerged the five were going to bury their granny who had died mysteriously.

Belina Lomen started complaining of pain after she killed a snake that was coiled in a corner in her kitchen.  The five family members lost their lives in the Kericho accident that claimed 58 lives.

In report by the Standard, Lomen was expecting some visitors and was cleaning up the house with the assistance of her house help.

The house help saw the python and called the elderly woman who killed it with a stick and took it out of the house before setting it ablaze. “After 45 minutes, my mother started complaining of pain all over her body.

Her body started swelling before she lost sight. And as she was going to the house to rest, she fell at the door and died,” said Caroline, Lomen’s daughter.

Caroline blamed the snake for the death of her mother and other five family members who died in the accident which claimed 58 lives.

Lomen was buried on Saturday, October 13. Relatives claimed the snake was reared by a known individual suspected to be practicing witchcraft.

The five family members were on their way to bury their granny before they met their untimely death.

Joseph Munala lost his son Roston, grandsons and a daughter-in-law who had called him the day before the accident informing him they were to travel at night for the burial of their granny.

“We had planned to go together to the mortuary to collect the body of their grandmother Lomen that particular morning only to receive information about the tragedy,” said Munala. Kakamega County organised a requiem mass for all the crash victims which will be held on Wednesday, October 17, with the families receiving free body transportation to their homes.
