Speaking at the mortuary today, Nakuru Public Health Officer Samuel Kingori said the government pathologist had taken samples for tests.
Security was beefed up in the area ahead of the prayers as families collected the bodies.
On Tuesday, Patel Dam owner Mansukh Patel said the burst pointed to heavy rainfall in Dundori Forest.
The farmer explained further that the rains eroded the soil.
"With high pressure, water accompanied by dead stumps, logs and big boulders hit the wall of the dam causing a huge gush of water into the farm and outlying settlements," he said.
Last week, the water authority said the was built illegally. The dam is one of a number on a sprawling farm near Solai.
