Samburu County Deputy Governor HE Julius Leseeto and Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries CEC Member Benedict Lentumunai flagged off distribution of 201 Somali breed camels at Lenkusaka, Samburu East Sub County.
The camels are meant for vulnerable households of Samburu East Sub County and Lodokejek Ward in Samburu Central Sub County. This is a huge step in strengthening livelihoods. Somali breed camels grow fast, fetch better prices in the market and have high milk yield.
So far the county government has distributed 2179 Somali breed camels in the lowlands. The county government will distribute additional 688 Somali breed camels this financial year.
The Somali camel project is a flagship food security project of Samburu County government targeting vulnerable households in the dry lowlands. Camels are drought resistant.
In attendance were Wamba East Ward MCA Hon. Siriman Lekwale, Wamba West Ward MCA Hon. Benjamin Leitore, Acting Chief Officer for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Tyson Lemako, Samburu East Sub County Administrator John Lenareu and other senior county government officers.
