THOUSANDS IN KWALE FACE STARVATION
More than 200,000 in Kinango and Lunga Lunga subcounties in Kwale are facing starvation. This is according to the National Drought Management Authority. Millions of livestock are also affected by the drought that has continued for the last two months. NDMA coordinator Roman Shera said residents walk many kilometres in search of water. He said they have set aside Sh6.5 million to deal with the issue in the two subcounties. Shera urged residents to plant drought resistant crops. He said the authority is buying water treatment chemicals.
