Description

The government has admitted that close to 1.5million people in arid and semi arid areas are facing starvation and announced remedial measures to avert a looming crisis. Devolution cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru who spoke after holding consultations with governors from the affected counties said the national government will take up the role of distribution of relief food to mitigate the starvation. The announcement came only a day after the ministry of agriculture declared there were sufficient food stocks in the  country  and blamed the county governments of failing to pick-up stocks for supply to affected families.
