Earlier reports had indicated that two other people, who were children had lost their lives. Muchiri however pointed out that the claims were speculations.

“Initially there had been reports that two children had also been swept by the floods but we confirmed that it was speculation,” remarked Police Commander.

He further urged residents of the area to find higher grounds to avoid a similar occurrence.

In 2017, one person died and two people had been reported missing after they were swept away with floods following the collapse of a floodwall in Kibera.
