A seven-minute prayer is what saved a man and his Toyota Hilux from being swept away by the heavy downpour that has left many Kenyans pointing fingers at the government for not doing enough to contain floods.
In a video making rounds on social media, a man is nearly washed away by floods but he is heard praying to God to stop the flood and save him from the havoc.
To the surprise of many, the video shows the rains miraculously halting, stabilising the car that was barely inches away from being carried by the raging waters.
It is what many have viewed as a miracle at a time when property had been destroyed with several business premises and people displaced by the rains in the coastal parts of the country.
Mombasa has been affected by the heavy showers calling for intervention from the county government with Governor Hassan Joho appearing to be involved directly in offering humanitarian aid to affected families.
