According to reports in Athiani Fm,the girl was fetching water in the said river when unfortunate happened. Efforts to find her body bore no fruits and exercise has began this morning led by area divers and other divers from the county government of Makueni to help retrieve it from the river.
Residents who live near the banks of the said river have been urged to keep close watch over their children during this rainy season. They have also been warned against sending their children to fetch water in rivers.
I also want to encourage people that during this rainy season, instead of going to rivers let harvest water using tanks and drums,so that we can reduce this kind of deaths.
I also want to urge the county governments, to ensure that all dams are fenced so that people or animals may not drown in them.
