The Kenya Red Cross Society has completed building 5,700 out of 6,000 houses for flood victims in 26 counties.

Secretary General Abbas Gullet said they had spent Sh1 ,allocated by the Government last year, to build the homes.

Mr Gullet said the funds were well utilised and had transformed the lives of victims who are now living in modern houses on higher grounds. He noted they had already submitted a report to the Interior ministry showing how the money was spent.

Gullet said this would end speculation, by some political leaders, on how the money was spent.
