3 dead, 1 injured in deadly explosion

Sad incident

One other person left in critical condition and were rushed to hospital for treatment.

Mandera South Deputy County Commissioner Paul Kemei confirmed the incident saying that the victims had been clearing a road along the Kenya-Somalia border.

“The victims have been clearing a road along the security wall and they were hit by what we suspect to be an improvised explosive device,” Mr Kemei stated.

The incident adds on to several other incidents of insecurity that have hit Mandera county in the recent past.

The national government has since 2015 been constructing a security wall along Kenya-Somalia border.
