Death Toll In Kenyan Landslide Flood Rises

The number of deaths recorded from floods and landslides in Kenya over the weekend has climbed to 52, an official told AFP on Monday.

Bodies were still being recovered in the Pokot region, 350 kilometres North-West of the capital Nairobi, after powerful walls of mud and rock swept away homes and buried people in their sleep on Saturday morning.

“The number of people confirmed dead now is 52,” he told reporters on Monday, adding that some had been buried and others taken to the mortuary.

The Kenya Meteorological Department has warned that more heavy rainfall is expected to lash parts of country until Tuesday, including in West Pokot, and urged people to be on high alert for landslides.
