RESIDENTS OF MIKINDUNI AREA, MKUNUMBI WARD RECEIVE RELIEF FOOD

Governor Fahim Twaha this afternoon led county officials in relief food distribution exercise in Mikinduni Village Witu ward.

The residents today received food stuff under the program aimed at cushioning residents against the effects of an ongoing drought.

Lack of rain has exacerbated drought conditions, resulting in poor to no harvests for Lamu’s small-holder farmers and water and vegetation scarcity for the livestock herding communities.

Marsabit, Mandera, Garissa, Wajir, Kilifi, Tana River, Lamu, Samburu, Kitui, Isiolo, and Laikipia are among the twelve (12) counties on high alert, according to the National Drought Management Authority’s (NDMA) drought report for July 2021 .
