Seven people have died in Karati area in Kinangop after a Probox car they were travelling in was swept away by raging floods.
The Sunday 4am accident occurred on the Engineer-Naivasha road.
Confirming the incident, Kinangop Deputy County Commissioner Joseph Nyameti said the seven were part of nine people who were travelling from Naivasha town to Kinangop.
"Two others narrowly escaped death after they jumped out of the vehicle. The vehicle was swept away after the driver of the Probox lost control due to poor visibility,” said Mr Nyameti.
The flash floods were caused heavy rains that pounded the area on Saturday night.
The seven, three women and four men were all from Maraigushu village.
