Kenya Raises Alarm As Flooding Death Toll Rises To 76


As the floodwaters recede in East Africa, residents in Kenya are struggling to deal with the aftermath, with at least 70 killed and tens of thousands driven from their homes.

The floods have washed away many roads and bridges, and left others partially destroyed especially in northern Kenya.

It was gathered that no fewer than 76 people have died and 40,000 displaced from their homes since the rains began pounding the country in October.

“Unfortunately we have lost 70 people across Kenya because of these rains and about 36,160 households have been displaced so far,” Ruto said in an address from State House on Saturday

The Kenyan leader also warned that cases of cholera and malaria were emerging in some areas.
