1.3 MILLION FACE DROUGHT – STATE
Last month, the government said more than 1.3 million Kenyans face drought. Kilifi, Kwale, Garissa, Wajir, Mandera, Isiolo and Samburu are some of the worst-affected counties. Devolution CS Mwangi Kiunjuri said state ministries are interving to ensure no lives are lost. “These people are in need of relief food, cash transfers, water and health interventions,” he said. Kiunjuri said the state will distribute water bowsers to the hardest hit regions.
