After months of missing in action, the rains are back in Nairobi.
Residents from many areas across the city are this morning reporting heavy torrents, accompanied by thunder and lightning.
This comes as a relief in many aspects. First, there is hope for the cost of groceries to come down, after months of ridiculously expensive rates.
Water shortages are also expected to cease, and the dusty environmental conditions will improve.
Even as we celebrate the downpour, we must remember to pray that it does not bring about destruction.
It is during the rainy season that we witness buildings collapsing, land and mudslides, floods, and rivers breaking their banks.
It would be a shame to wait so long for the blessing of rain to end deaths through starvation, only for more deaths to occur through the above-named disasters.
