Make use of rains and save water for the fu­ture

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal depart­ment has said these rains will con­tinue up to De­cem­ber. This tells us se­ri­ous mea­sures should be put in place in the ar­eas that are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing se­vere drought and star­va­tion. Putting the rains to good use should be of pri­mary im­por­tance to ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially in agri­cul­tur­ally rich ar­eas. Sus­tain­able mea­sures of har­vest­ing rain­wa­ter for do­mes­tic use and ir­ri­ga­tion should also be en­cour­aged. This water will be of use when the dry pe­riod comes, cush­ion­ing us against the ef­fects of such weather con­di­tions.
