Kenya facing famine

As if the riots and rising prices were not enough to contend with, we understand that many parts of Eastern Province are facing severe famine. Prolonged drought has led to massive crop failure.

Worst-hit areas are in the northern frontier districts of Chalbi, Moyale, Marsabit, Laisamis, Garbatulla and Isiolo. There are also problems in the Ukambani districts of Kitui, Mwingi, Machakos and Makueni.
