The two, a driver and one senior staff were heading to Mombasa from Lunga-Lunga when the tragedy happened on Friday evening.
Lunga-Lunga Deputy County Commissioner Joseph Sawe said the incident happened at around 7 pm when the two tried to cross the flooded Ramisi Bridge near the Kwale International Sugar Company Limited.
“The two had left the Lunga-Lunga one-stop border at 5:40 pm and rushed to head back home,” he said.
Rescue operations are ongoing to retrieve the two officers and the vehicle.
The police are looking for cranes, boats and all the machinery required to make the retrieving operation successful.
As a result, DCC Sawe said the road has been declared a no-go zone until the water level recedes.
“We have put roadblocks on both sides stopping commuters from crossing,” he said.
At this time, water was overflowing and overpowered the vehicle away with the duo still inside.
On Saturday Kenya Revenue Authority issued a statement confirming the incident.
Acting Regional Coordinator-Southern Region KRA Lawrence Siele said that the authority has already engaged family members of the two officers and an intensive search and rescue operation by a Government multi-agency team is underway.
“Two KRA officers have since been reported missing after the vehicle they were travelling in was swept away by the raging floods,” reads the statement.
KRA said it will continuously update the family members, its staff and the public on the progress and outcome of the rescue mission.
