    The leaders were on their way to the burial of former Suba MP Peter Nyakiama's wife when they got stuck. 

    Local leaders in the area blamed the national government for their predicament, citing a poor road network. 

    The heavy rainfall also affected different parts of the country with four people dying in Marakwet East.

    People living along Tana River and its surrounding areas asked to be on high alert because it had broken its banks. 

    Four more people died from the raging floods and added to the number that was announced by Government Spokesperson Colonel (Rtd) Cyrus Oguna on Thursday, October 17.

    "Four people have died from flooding in Meru, one in Turkana and another lost in Mandera," Oguna confirmed.

    The Meteorological Department of Kenya had warned Kenyans of the heavy rainfall. 

    In a notice dated October 14, 2019, the department reported that the wet season would continue in many parts of the country.
