Mukuru slums residents in Embakasi are facing serious health risks after sewer water entered their houses in the ongoing floods.
Some of the slum dwellers have been forced to use plastic containers to remove the sewer water from their houses.
The situation worsened last night when heavy rains hit the city causing floods due to the poor drainage system.
The residents claim they are forced to stay in the situation because they cannot afford better housing due to their low income.
They are now calling for the county government to assist by unclogging the blocked drainage system.
