A pregnant woman was on Saturday evening attacked and killed by a crocodile at the Lake Victoria, Kowang’e beach in Rarieda sub-county in Kenya.
The woman named Judith Akinyi Orwa, was attacked by the crocodile as she was fetching water at the shores of Lake Victoria.
“The crocodile mauled her before running with her into the lake,” said Mr. Hesbon Okelo Adhola, Chairman of Kowang’e Beach Management Unit (BMU).
According to a local media, Radio Ramogi, the 32-year-old fish monger’s body was recovered under some papyrus reeds by local fishermen and other community members after several hours of searching.
The chairman of BMU condemned the rampant cases of crocodile attacks in the area, and appealed to the Kenya Wildlife Service to intervene so as to end the incessant attack on human by the wildlife.
Her body has been deposited at the St. Mary’s Lwak Mission Hospital mortuary.
