Drought

The Place In Kenya Where A Cow Cannot Sell More Than 1000 Kenyan Shillings

As drought continues to bite most parts of North Eastern Kenya and some parts of coastal region,livestock and human alike are facing serious challenges in these regions. Scarcity of water and food has rendered the value of livestock in these regions very low. According to a story carried by the StarKenya,Ganze Residents are facing acute shortage of water and food.

The StarKenya has revealed that the livestock in this place are dying at an alarming rate. Kenya Road Cross Society Coastal Regional Manager,Hassan Musa puts the number of livestock death at 6500 since the beginning of the ravaging drought.

The Star reports that residents of Ganze are forced to slaughter their cow and dry the meat indicating that it is only tasty when the meat is dried.

Cows are weak and most buyers are unwilling to pay more than 1000 shillings for a cow.

"The cows which are still alive have no markets and buyers are not willing to part even with Sh. 1000." The StarKenya reported.

The report further indicates that most children do not go to school and that due to tasteless meat,the residents prefer Ugali-Omena inspite of plenty of meat.
