President William Ruto is set to address the nation today at 1 pm.

Earlier in the week, the Head of State chaired a Cabinet meeting to discuss additional measures to mitigate the effects of the rains, highlighting the urgency of the situation.

The Cabinet was informed of the likelihood of Cyclone Hidaya hitting the Coastal region, prompting preparations for heavy rainfall, large waves, and strong winds.

Recognizing climate change’s role in extreme weather events, the government is committing to implementing measures, programs, and policies to address its effects.

Weather forecasts predict continued heavy rains across the country, necessitating proactive measures to prevent further damage from flooding, landslides, and mudslides.

The announcement of President Ruto’s address was made by State House spokesman Hussein Mohammed on X after a second cabinet meeting this week to deliberate on extra measures to mitigate the devastating effects of flooding, mudslides, and landslides in many parts of the country.
