Four children drowned on Tuesday in Eldas, Wajir County as they attempted to swim in a swollen stream.

Two of the victims were in Standard Five, one in Grade One and another in Grade Three.

Heavy rains in the area have occasioned flash floods which have cut off roads and marooned villages.

Wajir County Director of Education Hussein Osman confirmed the deaths.

EXAM CENTRES

The official said as a result of the heavy rains, some examination centres have been moved.
