​Flooding

Flooding has affected 29 of the country’s 47 counties. Acres and acres of land are underwater in Busia and Siaya counties, western Kenya after the Nzoia river overflowed. Many family farms have disappeared entirely under the floodwaters of a swollen Lake Victoria on Kenya’s southern border, forcing farmers to join tens of thousands of other Kenyans seeking shelter from the worst floods in three generations. The last time that Lake Victoria last reached these levels was back in the 1950s

On the 13the May, a Government Minister said, "250 lives have been lost due to flooding and more than 800,000 Kenyans in 161,000 households adversely affected by the ongoing heavy rains, which are expected to continue up to June."

He added “It is unfortunate that the floods and landslides are being experienced at a time when the country is grappling with the COVID -19.
