At least 10 killed by flash floods in SW Kenya

18 November 2015, 21:35

Rok - More than 10 people have died since heavy rains started pounding Narok County in southwest Kenya at the beginning of this month.

County Commissioner Magu Mutindika said five children of the same family died on Tuesday after they were hit by mudslides in Enakishomi area of Narok South Sub County.

Mutindika said another two children died last week in Loita and Kilgoris in Narok South and Transmara East respectively while trying to cross seasonal rivers.

The government administrator said three people also died on Nov. 9 while crossing a seasonal river in Talek, Narok West Sub County near Maasai Mara, bringing the number of people who have been killed by flash floods in the region to 10.

"The seasonal rivers have now turned into death traps because the region has suddenly been hit by heavy downpour and most of the locals underrate such waters," Mutindika told journalists in Narok town.
