Victims of 1997 Elnino rains still living in camp in Elgeyo Marakwet

29, Sep 2015

In 2012, 16 people including three children died along the Elgeyo escarpment after heavy rains pounded the region. The tragedy preceded another one in Marakwet East where 14 people in Kittony village were killed by massive landslides in 2010. Even as the impending Elnino rains are set to cause landslides in that area, a group of people are yet to be settled by the government since 1997.
