Kaiti MP Joshua Kimilu, a colleague of Thuddeus Nzambia in the National Assembly has condoled the family.

“My sincere condolences to the Nzambia family and Kilome people. May you find God's favour during this hard time,” he said.

This comes days after another swollen river claimed the lives of eight people who were attempting to cross the swollen Muooni River in Makueni County.

The victims are reported to be attendees returning from the 14th anniversary celebration of the Joyful Women Organization (JOYWO) at Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.

On Saturday November 25, Makueni Governor Mutula Kilonzo junior urged the national government to intervene.

"The cabinet should now declare El Niño a National disaster and mechanisms be put in place to mitigate the effects . The framework we had proposed in the Senate in 2019 should also be considered by Parliament. We can longer continue denying the obvious," he said.

On November 27, 2023, President William Ruto chaired a special Cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi, to address the ongoing El Niño situation and its impact on Kenya.

The meeting was convened in response to the heavy rains and flooding that have caused significant challenges in various parts of the country, with over 70 lives lost and over 36,000 households displaced.

President Ruto expressed concern about the situation and emphasized the need for both short and long-term measures to mitigate the effects of El Niño.

The short-term interventions to be implemented immediately include the use of Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) services to address the emergency situation.

The President highlighted the importance of preparedness and mitigation efforts, as the Met Department forecasts that the rains will continue.

He emphasized the need for the government to prepare for the emergency situation that is expected to arise due to the ongoing situation.
