The villagers feasted on the carcass even after after a veterinary officer warned them to dispose of the meat as it was not fit for human consumption.
The dead cow is suspected to have been infected with East Coast fever.
The victims were rushed to Olenguruone Sub-County Hospital after experiencing symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
