Kenya floods: Death toll reaches 267

Floods, triggered by relentless downpours in Kenya in the last three weeks, have claimed 267 lives, authorities reported Saturday.

Interior Minister Kithure Kindiki said 188 individuals have been injured, while 75 remain missing.

He noted that adverse weather conditions have affected 389,000 people, with 56,000 families forced to evacuate their homes.

The floods have damaged 9,000 acres of agricultural land and resulted in the loss of 4,000 livestock.

The government has established 167 camps to assist those affected.

Countries across East Africa, including Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, are grappling with the adverse effects of the heavy rains-induced floods.
