The body of a woman has been recovered in Kibera, Sarangombe area after Nairobi floods wreaked havoc.
According to reports, the woman was swept away with her two children after heavy rains on Tuesday evening.
Speaking on the unfortunate incident, Kibera sub county commander Michael Muchiri, the two children have not been found.
The police officer further noted that a team has since been dispatched to trace them.
