More than 11 million Kenyans are at risk of contracting sleeping sickness if the government does not improve education on tsetse flies and trypanosomiasis, a research states.

The Kenya Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Eradication Council chairman Gideon Nzau said the state over the years has neglected the disease even though tsetse flies breed in large numbers in North Rift, South Rift, Western and Nyanza.

He spoke during a workshop on tsetse flies and trypanosomiasis management in Siaya on Thursday.
