The Misery in Turkana

Located in the Great Rift Valley and to the North of Kenya lies Turkana County. This is a semi-arid region.

In terms of agricultural production, the region is often less agriculturally productive. They involve in cattle rearing whee they are mostly forced to move with their cattle from one place to the other in search of pasture and water.

The cattle breeds are often of low quality, meaning that they do not get as much dairy products as expected.

Hunger s often the talk of the day. Pictures and media coverage have shown how emaciated and unhealthy people and cattle are. Despite the random assistance from NGOs, the government and the international community, hunger still remains a challenge.

This is one region known for scorching sun. Sadly, if it rains, then it floods everywhere. Homes are swept away, cattle drown and people displaced.

This region is also rampant in cases of insecurity involving border disputes and cattle rustling
