More than 50 residents of Mokubo village, Magenche Ward in Kisii County were on Thursday rendered homeless after a landslide damaged their houses and destroyed crops.

Mokubo location Chief, Samwel Omambia said the road from Eberege –Etago, linking Kenyenya and Etago sub counties was cut off, trees swept and three houses buried following heavy rainfall which pounded the area.
