Homa Bay residents were forced to push vehicles belonging to two leaders that were stuck on a muddy road.
Citizen Digital on Saturday, October 19, reported that Homa Bay Senator Moses Kajwang and former Kitui Senator David Musila's vehicles were stuck on Koguta Sinda Road.
The road remained impassable for hours as members of the public were seen pushing the cars after a heavy downpour in the area.
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.
The weatherman had highlighted more than 40 affected counties with residents in the mentioned areas advised to be on the lookout for potential floods.
