Light rains hit most parts of the country on Subday evening following a prolonged dry spell that has left millions of people facing drought.

Nairobi, Narok, Eldoret, Nakuru, Thika and most regions in Western Kenya experienced the light showers.

Most residents, especially in Nairobi, were caught unawares as there were no indications that the heavens would open up so suddenly since the better part of the day was spent under the scorching sun

This comes just over a week after Nyeri experienced rains during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s visit to the county.

Nairobi residents have been experiencing water rationing since the beginning of the year occasioned by the fall in water levels at Ndakaini dam due to low rains experience last year.
