Heavy rains which have pounded parts of Nairobi has exposed the city’s ill-preparedness to deal with devastating floods.
It has also exposed the corruption by the so called Nairobi elites and politicians, many who have grabbed wetlands, sewer lines and other drainage lands for residential and commercial purposes.
There has also been increase in pollution of Nairobi river, with several sections blocked due to industrial and residential waste, mostly polythene bags.

It's unfortunate that our drainage system has never been upgraded for many years. County Government please step up and do so #NairobiFloods
