Hundreds of families have been left homeless and several have been killed after heavy rains caused destruction in various parts of Kenya.
A man drowned as he tried to cross the flooded Kipkaren River in Nandi County, in Kenya’s Rift Valley, while several families were left homeless as rains pounded the area.
In Nyeri County, central Kenya, a dam burst its banks, visiting misery on residents of Mikumbune Kamangura village.
Speaking to the media on Monday, irate residents attributed the destruction to the poor construction of the dam, which is meant to boost agricultural production in the area.
Mr Morris Kinoti said the dam now poses additional danger to children after its fence was brought down by floods.
