Shortage of milk and beef has been a problem in Kilifi some time now due the ongoing drought. There has been serious scorching sun this year in Kilifi which has lead to inadequate water supply which is the supporting ingredient to plants and animals and now the residents can barely get meat or milk from their livestock.
They are saying that the county can only produce two percent of meat for its people and the remaining 98 percent is obtained from other counties. Luciana Sanzua, the minister of agriculture also said that the county now produces milk of about two million lower than that because the drought is not stopping anytime soon.
The farmers are now complaining of the continued losses that have been suffering and calls for help from the government.
The kilifi governor Kingi, says that all these problems have been brought about by the abrupt changes of weather and says that farmers should come up with ways that will sustain agricultural sector with or without rain.
