The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

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.
