The Kenya Railways company has suspended commuter train services in Nairobi due to heavy rains that have caused flooding in various parts of the country.

In a statement, Kenya Railways noted that the floods affected the railway lines, making it difficult for trains to operate.

The trains serve various routes in the city, including Syokimau, Pipeline, Njiru, and Kikuyu.

As a result, the Kenya Urban Authority has ordered the temporary closure of some highways following the heavy rains experienced last night.

Aerodrome Road, UN Avenue – Runda, and Kasarani Mwiki Road at Mwiki Bridge are among the affected roads.

Motorists have also been warned of flooding along Mombasa Road at Cabanas, Thika Road at Githurai/ Kahawa bridge.
