1 min read

Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo has asked county governments to complement interventions being taken by the national government to mitigate the effects of the ongoing El Nino rains.

Speaking on Sunday in Bondo, Omollo said the national government has continued to exercise its duty in ensuring Kenyans are safe from the dangers posed by floods witnessed in part of the country due to the ongoing rains.

“We want county governments too to help people in bad situations due to El Nino rains. Let them add to what the national government is currently doing,” he said.

He said President William Ruto has launched an aggressive action plan to address effects of the rains.

“The National Disaster Operations Centre, under my state department has been mandated to progressively update the country on what we’re doing to alleviate the suffering of Kenyans during this period,” the PS explained.

He noted that the government has put in place short and long-term measures aimed at dealing with the effects of El Nino rains.

“It’s part of our responsibility to coordinate emergency response to all Kenyans in distress,” he said.
