A man has been killed by a buffalo in Mwatate, Taita Taveta county. Robert Ngongodi, 47, was walking to his home in Manoa on Thursday when he was attacked.
Residents said the buffalo hit him on the head, chest and the upper abdomen. It was shot dead by Kenya Wildlife Service rangers who responded to a distress call. Ngongondi's brother Daniel Ngongodi told the Star on the phone he was taken to Moi Hospital, Voi. He was then transferred to the Coast General Hospital, where he died yesterday morning.
