President William Ruto in Mathare on floods

It was guaranteed by President William Ruto that every impacted household would get Sh10,000 to assist with food and relocation costs. 

President William Ruto visited Mathare, located in Nairobi County, on Monday evening to assess the flooding situation and check on the victims who had to flee due to the severe rains.

The President went on a visit to the Kiamaiko region, where he spoke to the inhabitants and assured them that the government would help them.

Although the government is working to find a long-term solution, he said that it would provide each affected family with a sum of ten thousand shillings to assist them in finding other housing for a period of three months.

Ruto told reporters, "We evacuated 40,000 households for their safety; every household will receive Sh10,000 to look for alternative housing while waiting for government intervention."

"We will give them the money for a 3-month rent as the government looks for another alternative."

In addition to other state authorities, the President was accompanied by Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki, Public Service Officer Raymond Omollo, and Charles Hinga, who is his counterpart in the Housing Department.

Mathare was one of the neighborhoods in Nairobi that was severely impacted by flooding.

Floods surged through houses in Mathare, resulting in the loss of many lives as well as multiple houses.
