Nailu said a young boy and a man were rescued by members of the public from drowning.

“The two had been swept by the water. They got stuck on the road and that is when we were able to rescue them. We have never seen such floods in this area,” said Nailu.

Area MP, Kanini Kega who visited the area to assess the situation asked those living in low areas to vacate to avoid more tragedy.

He asked the County Government of Nyeri to assist the affected families rebuild their lives using the allocated El nino money.

“County Government should assist the families because they had set aside more than KES 300 million for El nino preparedness. The families are in need,” said Kega.
