    Kenya's public prosecutor is launching an investigation into what caused a dam to burst killing at least 50 people.

    Officials say it did not have the required permission to operate.

    But the interior ministry has told Al Jazeera the dam's operation was entirely legal.

    All this, as rescuers search for survivors.

    Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons reports.
