Kenyans inhabiting ten counties of Kenya can now breathe with a sigh of relief after the Kenyan Government announced that it will be giving them free food products.
The Kenyan government through its Spokesperson has divulged that all Kenyans inhabiting the counties of Isiolo, Baringo, Kajiado, Marsabit, Turkana, Wajir, Garissa, Samburu, Mandera and West Pokot will receive rice, beans, cooking oil, assorted canned beef and livestock feeds.
The Kenyan Government has articulated that these commodities that will be given to the Kenyans inhabiting the ten counties will be a strategic move geared towards cushioning them from the devastating effects of drought and resultant food shortage.
"In its commitment to alleviate the ravages of drought, the Government has embarked on a phased distribution programme of relief food to the worst hit areas: Baringo, Garissa, Isiolo, Mandera, West Pokot, Marsabit, Wajir, Kajiado, Samburu and Turkana," the Government stated.
