Nyeri - Mukurwe-ini residents have been asked to relocate to higher and hilly areas as fear for el-nino mounts.

The local deputy County commissioner, Isaac Masinde has said the government and Red Cross society are fully prepared for Elnino season that has been predicted by national metrological department.

Masinde urged those living in mudslide-prone areas like Kigathi location and those in areas with loose soil to relocate before October when the rains are expected to start.
