Heavy rains nearly bring Mombasa to a halt


The heavy rains that continue to pound at the Coast have affected many businesses including the Port of Mombasa.

According to the Kenya Ports Authority, the downpour has slowed down and even halted some operations at port for the last two days.

“The rains have paralysed ship operations prompting all ships at the Conventional Cargo area to close hatches. Most affected vessels are those carrying wheat, fertiliser, steel and coal. At the Container Terminal currently only deliveries are working,” KPA said on its Facebook page on Thursday.

The Standard Gauge Railway freight services have also been severely affected.
