The recent ‘plague’ that has shocked Kenyans has finally hit parts of Bungoma County in Western.
Kenyans in Bungoma were warned against eating them since they carried medicine in them that were used in other counties.
Bungoma is the 19th county since the locusts invasion in December 28th 2019 from Ethiopia through Garissa.
Agriculture CS faced the wrath of Kenyans after saying that residents should not worry about the locusts since they turned colour yellow and will soon die of old age.
Some Kenyans from Western were ‘eagerly waiting’ for the locusts to land in their area so they can turn them into a meal.
Bungoma Agriculture County Executive Committee (CEC) Mathews Makanda said the insects were harbouring chemicals sprayed on them in areas they previously invaded thus posing a health risk if eaten.
This was after a report confirmed that a section of Mt. Elgo and Kimilili areas invaded by the locusts were planning on eating them.
