Ahero Bridge on the Kisumu-Nairobi highway has been rendered impassible following overflow leaving traffic and commuters stranded.

The waters have flooded most of Ahero town, causing significant damage and halting all town activities. On the other hand, river Nyando has broken its bank at Ahero town and crippled economic activities within the town including severing transport activities for those accessing or leaving the town by the bridge.

Kisumu County Police Commander Alphonse Ombuya confirmed the Nyando river overflow at Ahero town and sadly noted that some residents have seized the opportunity to rob travelers of their belongings.

Police officers have since been deployed at the bridge to provide security and also to ensure that people safely cross the overflowing river which has equally marooned the Ahero police post with members of the public now being asked to use alternative routes to reach Kisumu town.
