A man from Eshirumba village, Kakamega County, has been forced to live under a tree after heavy rains destroyed his house.
Alphonce Shivachi says he has been neglected by his family and has nowhere else to go.
He told TV47 that it has been three weeks since he started living under a tree. He braces himself every evening to withstand the bleak weather.
“Sasa wiki tatu zimekwisha kutoka nyumba kuanguka na mimi nalala nje kutoka siku ile. Inakuwa tu bahati ya Mungu ndio nikule chakula. Naskia baridi mingi tena mvua inaninyeshea (it has been three weeks since my house was destroyed by the rains. I get food only by God’s Grace. I am rained on and feel very cold),” he cries.
His neighbours say they share the extra food they have with him. The neighbours are now calling on well wishers to house the septuagenarian.
