Nassir emphasized his commitment to the safety and well-being of all Mombasa County residents.

"We are leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to protect our communities from the potential ravages of heavy rainfall. It is our responsibility to ensure that we are fully prepared for any eventuality," he stated during one of the committee meetings.

In addition to these preventive measures, the county administration is gearing up to support the most vulnerable families in Mombasa.

Together with the Kenya Red Cross Society, care packs are being prepared to provide essential supplies that will help the families overcome unforeseen hardships that may arise during the rainy season.

The governor said that his administration is committed to the safety and resilience of Mombasa County residents in the face of natural disasters.

He said the proactive approach demonstrated by the administration is expected to significantly reduce the potential impact of heavy rains in the coming months.
