>> Kenya's police has been ordered to investigate a burst dam which killed dozens of people in the rift valley. The reservoir on a commercial farm burst it banks on Wednesday evening leaving a trail of devastation in its path. It swept away power lines, homes, and buildings, and claimed the lives of at least 44 people.
Another 40 people have been reported missing. Writing on Twitter, Kenya's Public Prosecutor's Office said it had ordered the police to carry out thorough investigations to establish cause and any culpability and file a report within two weeks. The farm's general manager blamed the dam wall collapse on torrential rain.
He denied that the dam was faulty.>> These dams were not built now, this is about 60, 70 years we are right now we are. All these dams were built about 15 to 20 years before, there is no illegal.>> The race is now on to secure other dams in the area.
Government engineers started draining water from this one in a bid to prevent any further disasters.
