At least 200 families displaced as mudslides wreak havoc

At least two hundred households in Ntuka village, Keyan ward, Tramsmara Sub-County, Narok County have been displaced following mudslides caused by heavy rains that have continued to pound the area in the last one week.

The affected land caused a four hundred-metre valley after a crack stretching one kilometres caused the land movement.

The displaced families have since been evacuated to Empash Primary School, despite the challenges that hinder social distancing rules to combat Coronavirus.

The affected residents appealed to the two levels of government and their area leaders to expedite efforts of aiding them with personal essentials.

Speaking to the press over the phone the area MCA Mark Mukuti, advised the residents to move to safer areas in a bid to avoid fatalities.

Mukuti said that he had reached out to Narok County’s department of Disaster Management and promised that donations will be availed to the afflicted households.
