Flooding is thought to have harmed over 100,000 people, wrecked crops, and harmed houses, schools, small businesses, and infrastructure.

The Red Cross sent out tactical teams earlier this week to help with search and rescue operations in Nairobi’s diverse areas, which were hit hard by Saturday’s severe rains.

Residents in flood-prone areas have been advised to relocate to higher land.

According to Martha Waema, a flood victim whose farm was wrecked by the torrential rains battering the nation, the government ought to step in.
