200 people dead and 40,000 displaced after heavy rains cause mudslides and rivers to overflow.

East Africa has experienced major floods after heavy rain in recent weeks, with Kenya particularly badly affected.

Starting from March, around 200 people have lost their lives to overflowing rivers and mudslides, while 40,000 have been displaced.

The water levels in Lake Victoria have grown sufficiently over the past week to impact settlements along its banks.

Further torrential rain across the border in Uganda has caused flooding on numerous rivers over the past few days, forcing people to flee.
