11 May 2012, 08:22

Elgeyo-Marakwet - Seven school children are among 15 people who have drowned in the last two days as heavy rains continue to wreak havoc across the country.

A team of geologists from the Ministry of Lands toured Kittony, Embobut and Kakisoo villages and directed residents to leave as the heavy rains had eroded the grounds, raising the chances of a landslide.
