RIYADH: The Saudi Foreign Ministry expressed on Wednesday the Kingdom’s condolences to the families of those who died after a makeshift dam burst its banks in Kenya’s Rift Valley on Monday.

At least 48 people including children died as a result of the incident. 

Residents said the accident occurred in the dead of night when the dam burst near the town of Mai Mahiu in Nakuru county, sending torrents of water and mud gushing down a hill and engulfing everything in its path.
