Don’t disregard El Niño warnings – Wamatangi

By: GEORGE MUGO

Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi has asked residents not to disregard warnings on El Niño rains by the weather department.

Wamatangi urged people living in flood-prone areas to move to safer grounds to save lives and property.

“We should not disregard the El Niño predictions. We are hearing reports of people dying and animals being swept away by the floods,” he said.

Speaking in Limuru town, Wamatangi asked people to pray for Pope Francis’ visit on November 25 to 27.

Wamatangi said the Pope’s visit should be felt by all Kenyans.

“I would love so much to see him concentrate on prayers to dedicate this country to God, rather than seeing his concentration drawn to the aftermath of El Niño floods,” he said.

Wamatangi said the Pope’s visit should not be taken lightly as it marks a blessing to Kenyans, regardless of tribe, race or religion.

“He is a leader of the Catholic church in the world and also the Vatican. We should feel humbled and dedicate him to God through prayers,” the senator said.
