This is very sad... the culprit was released by the government (or the lack of it, in this case).
There are safer alternatives and no reason whatsoever to keep using old and poisonous pesticides.
If Africa wants to survive, African countries have to keep up with the times and ban this obsolete product.
Also, they have to start enforcing the law, properly.

Let us hope Kenya sees reason & enforces the ban.

how many more must die before they ban this? They are guilty by association for not banning it. It's like standing by while someone else commits murder and does nothing. Twisted.
