Human rights lobby slam Mombasa County government over floods

29 April 2016, 15:20 Gabriel Ngallah

Nairobi - Human rights lobby at the Coast have slammed the Mombasa county government for failing to take necessary measures in averting floods within the county.

The Human right activist from Haki Africa said that the rains have lead to most of locals forced to live like squatters in the county after their houses were flooded by rain water since last Sunday to date.

Speaking at the Haki Africa offices in Mombasa on Wednesday afternoon the human rights organization Executive director Khalid Hussein raised concerns over the manner in which the County has allowed unplanned buildings and other construction in areas which were meant for the construction of drainage systems.

Hussein said that the situation may be as a result of corruption deals within the county that is why even during little rain roads are totally impassable.

The human rights icon said that locals in area including Changamwe, Likoni and Kisauni are living in fear especially after the meteorological department issued a flash floods alert on Tuesday this week that Mombasa and the entire parts of the South coast region, Kilifi, Tana river and Lamu will experience heavy rains from Wednesday night.

“We have been living with this problems for a very long time now can the county government explain to us when will it be satisfactorily concluded?” posed Hussein.

He challenged the county government to come up with long term measures to avert floods in the County.
