In Summary
  • Transport was grounded in many areas as most roads were rendered impassable.

Heavy rains disrupted transport in Kilifi County on Monday, as vehicles were unable to manoeuvre through bad roads especially in rural areas.

Some roads were flooded while others were muddy. The rains began on Sunday night.


Ganze Deputy County Commissioner Mohamed Mwabudzo said the rains did not affect the distribution of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam papers.

“We had distributed the exam papers well before the downpour in Ganze. Our worry now is how to get back the exam papers since the rains are expected to continue,” he said.

Mr Mwabudzo said transport was grounded in areas between Bamba and Midoina following heavy rains on Saturday and Sunday.

“As we speak now, most roads are impassable, especially in Midoina and Rima Ra Pera. There are some areas in Sokoke and Jaribuni, which have also been affected. Since it is still raining, we cannot be certain about how the situation will be,” he said.
