Goods News To Kenyans After Ruto's Government Secure A Deal To Supply Meat To Schools

In an effort to combat hunger in the nation, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua reached an agreement with the Kenya Meat Commission (KMC) and Red Cross to provide meat to schools.

Gachagua stated in a speech on Friday, October 7, that the administration had taken the complaints of farmers who were losing their livestock seriously. As a result, it consented to buy the animals and give the meat to hungry families.

Before the meat was given to the schools, it would be canned.

The DP added that a central command had been established to facilitate coordination in the distribution of aid in all impacted counties in order to further combat the drought threat.

Gachagua noted the measures were made to make sure no Kenyan died from hunger after presiding over a conference of governors from arid and semi-arid (ASAL) districts at his Harambee Annex office in Nairobi."The National Government will mobilise resources while county governments have agreed to complement us. Our development partners have also agreed to support us in containing the famine situation," he stated.

Gachagua also advised county commissioners and governors to take the helm of committees that will prepare lists of needy families in their counties rather than delegating to their juniors.
