Covid Claims Another Life, Owner of tragic Solai Dam Perry Patel Mansukh Succumbs to Covid 19

Perry Mansukh the owner of Solai dam has succumbed to Covid 19. The dam after bursting its bank led to the death of more than 48 people. 2000 people were left homeless after the water swept away their homes. 

Although the dam killed a lot of people, it initially was used to grow flowers that were exported. Patel was the owner of the flower farms. The farms impacted positively the people of the Solai Region. Patel’s family also boasts of owning Kensalt; a salt manufacturing company located in Mombasa.

Perry blamed heavy rains on the disaster that shook Solai in 2018. He was arrested and later released together with eight others. This news came as a shock for the Solai residents, who saw that they had been denied justice. They had been charged with 48 counts of manslaughter but in the end, they were set free. Kenyans have taken to social media to mourn the death of Perry Patel. Apart from the dam saga, many claim that Patel was a good man and a great entrepreneur.
