RESIDENTS GET RELIEF FOOD
The six subcounties of Mandera county have received relief food from the national government, following drought in the region. The 1,000 bags of rice, 300 bags of beans and 200 bags of maize are meant to address drought in 63,000 households in the county. Local leaders urged the state to increase its allocation to the drought fund beyond the recently released Sh5 billion to manage hunger in the country. The leaders have called upon the government to set up backup generators.
