Doha - Daily Nation reports that, a new United Nations report has faulted the Kenyan Government for failing to invest in flood control infrastructure.
Released on the sidelines of the ongoing climate change negotiations in Doha, Qatar, the report notes that dykes specifically in Budalang’i , western Kenya are poorly designed, resulting in underground seepage and backflows of water.
Constructed 24 years ago, the report conducted between May and August this year says, many of them are in urgent need of repair or replacement.
