The death toll from floods wreaking havoc in Coast has risen to 20 after six more people died in Kilifi county.Kenya - 46 dead and 58,000 displaced as floods worsen
On Wednesday, Kilifi Governor Gideon Mung'aro said a total of nine people have died in the county, up from the three announced earlier. The deceased include six adults and two children in Malindi, Magarini, and Kilifi South.
In Majengo, Kilifi South, a child drowned after their house was marooned by the floods, while a widow and his grandchild were also found dead inside their house that was submerged.
Munga'ro, who issued a report on the impact of the ongoing El Nino rains in Kilifi, said that the body of another victim who drowned at River Sabaki is yet to be retrieved.
"The victim was swept away by floods in Burangi area while crossing the river last week. We have dispatched divers to search and retrieve the body," he said.
One person is missing in Malindi, while two others are recuperating in hospital after sustaining injuries from fallen trees during the heavy rains.
On Saturday, Coast Region Coordinator Rodha Onyancha said one person died in Mombasa, three in Kwale, three in Kilifi, and two in Tana River.
A boda boda rider drowned in Taita Taveta, and the bodies of two Kenya Revenu Authority (KRA) officers were retrieved from Ramisi River, taking the number of those who have perished from floods to 20.
Meanwhile, a war of words has erupted between Coast leaders and Deputy President Righathi Gachagua, who on Tuesday accused Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir of lamenting instead of helping the affected people.
