Renowned media personality, author, and human rights activist Janet Mbugua is calling out the government for its lack of preparedness in dealing with the current heavy rains and floods ravaging the country.

Sharing to her socials, the former news anchor shared a few screen grabs one of them being of emergency tolls citizens affected by the floods or in an emergency can use as well as a Kenya Red Cross Toll Free Line.

Janet also attached a few images depicting the severity of the floods and the predicaments Kenyans have found themselves in following the heaving rains.

Captioning the post she shared the feelings of anger and fear that her fellow citizens were experiencing during these tough times as she went on to call out the government for their second to basic reaction to the floods as well as lack of any preparation measures even though we had been warned about the oncoming heavy rainfall months in advance.

"Close to 200 Kenyans have lost their lives as of 10 PM EAT last night, according to Reuters. Thinking of all those who lost their lives and those who watched their loved ones pass on.

I don't know how we got here, but we're here. And it's devastating and heartbreaking," started the mother of 2 in a lengthy Instagram post.

Finishing up, the philanthropic author went on to question if Kenyan lives mattered to those in power as she asked citizens to come together to help one another through God's grace during these tough times.

"There's anger, frustration, fear, confusion. The lack of preparedness and the reaction from those tasked to address these floods, which we were warned about. But it's too little too late.

Our lives aren't a priority?

I'm not sure if the resources I've shared will assist but let's start somewhere. Share any resources you have as well.

Let's join hands and get through this. God help us," the last of her post read.
