BY CORRESPONDENT,KAKAMEGA,22ND MAY 2018-One person   has been swept away  as he tried to cross flooded river  Nambirima  in Laugari subcounty,Kakamega county.

Residents who spoke to WWW.UPESINEWS.CO.KE  says that the late  Mwangi Kirau  was swept away by the river which is currently flooded due to the ongoing rains.”Kwa kawaida mto huu hutumiwa na watu kuvuka hadi ngambo wakati hakuna mvua kubwa,lakini sasa imekuwa hatari kwani mvua imenyesha na  mto kufurika sana.(In normal circumstances,the river is always used by people crossing to the other side when it has not rained,but the situation is different since rains have been pounding this area and it is now flooded)”.said Beatrice Nakhumicha who is a resident.

Currently  search efforts for the body are ongoing.

Residents are appealing to the kakamega county government to repair  roads in the area which are in poor conditions.
