A couple has been arrested following an altercation with two people accompanying census officers in Kisumu.

The two are said to have caused commotion at their home in Obunga slums on Sunday when census officers tried to enumerate them.

The woman who was at home then started wailing and calling for husband who was away.

The man, identified as Richard Ochieng upon returning home chased away the enumerators and in the process bit the village elder’s fingers.

According to Acting Kanyakwar Chief Maurice Ojwang, the couple has proven difficult on various occasions including polio vaccinations. They have apparently declined to have their children vaccinated in the past.

They are being held at Kisumu Central Police Station.

This comes a day after a female census enumerator attached to Maseno, Kisumu County, was hospitalized after she was gang raped and robbed by unknown attackers.
