Meanwhile fear has gripped Kikoneni village in Lungalunga, following a buffalo invasion.
According to residents, the buffalo attacked a man, injuring him and even breaking his leg.
“This buffalo is also invading farms and destroying our crops”, they stated.
Residents have now called on the Kenya Wildlife Service-KWS- personnel to subdue the bufallo and return it to Shimba Hills game reserve where it believed to have come from.
