At least seven people are feared dead after they were swept away by a flooded river in south-eastern Kenya.
A local chief said they were sitting on a log in the middle of the river as they tried to cross when the floodwaters rose and took them away.
The group was returning to their homes in Makueni County after meeting First Lady Rachel Ruto in Nairobi.
Kenya, as well as neighbouring Somalia and Ethiopia, are grappling with their worst flooding in recent history.
Local media who quoted witnesses say that several people had been left stranded after the Muooni River flooded following several hours of intense rain, but the group resolved to attempt crossing it anyway on Thursday evening.
