Floods in Lake Baringo displace people

30 August 2012, 14:00 Ben Ali

Nakuru county leaders are warning on crisis over the continuous flooding of Lake Baringo and the rivers feeding it that has so far displaced over 3000 people.
On a tour to Salabani location in Marigat District, the leaders led by veteran Politician Koigi Wamwere formerly MP for Subukia have termed the government irresponsibility as a shameful act of selfishness to tax payers living in the area.
He said that it’s saddening to see all health facilities and schools in the Salabani, N’gambo and Kiserian areas in Marigat closed due to flooding that has going on for a whole three months yet government  mechanisms are on the ground.
A human right activist Amos ole Mpaka has said women have even been forced to give birth in water due to lack of transport to hospital which is miles away.
He has also said there are fears of outbreak of diseases because the residents still use this water.
The residents are calling for the immediate sacking of the area DC Saul Mwaiwaiwa whom they allege has not been delivering on his duties and have vowed to evict him from office over what they termed as negligence and discrimination to these people mostly from the Elchamus community.
Also arising is the fear of human beings being attacked by hippos and crocodiles that get close to the residents due to the increase of water levels.
Further reports from Lake Baringo area reveal that the lives of over 1,000 people living in Kokwo island is in danger after a huge landslide tore the island into two leaving the helpless victims hopeless.
