Is there a mystery behind the "Crying stone "of kakamega?


Country: Kenya


The stone is found on top of the hills south of Kakamega at a place called Ilesi

The cause of this natural curiosity is a hidden reservoir at the top of the stone “head.” When it rains the reservoir fills up with water and slowly flows through small cracks down the side of the “shoulders.”. Moss that grows inside the reservoir soaks up water and allows it to flow for many weeks at a time, even during a drought.
