This rumour is confirmed true and is of medium priority – here's why:
Reliable sourecs in Yangalita village in Bidibidi refugee settlement confirmed two south Sudanese refugee dead in two separate incidence one 28 years old man bitten by snake while cutting a tree for construction in the near by forest on February 20 he was bitten in the bush a distant away from the settlement where no one was able to come for his rescue and subsequently he dead of the snake bite. The other incident happened in block C where a young girl stepped on the snake at night and was bitten and unknowing that it was a snake bite and later she dead in the morning of 27 of February at around 4;45 Am and was buried the following day.

But the allegation that the snakes were send by the host community wasn't true.
