"Please help Us ", Turkana Residents Appealing For Help as the Drought Situation Worsens

Turkana County is one of the areas in Kenya where there is drought and famine every year because of the bad weather in the region.The other counties in Kenya which are affected by drought and lack of water are Samburu, Isiolo, Kajiado, Kitui, Makueni, Machakos, Wajir, Garissa and Mandera.Though the situation in Turkana has always been the worst of all due to the poverty there.

Many of the residents there are unemployed, iliterate and have no good farms which they can plant and harvest.They only depend on the cattle grazing which is everything in their life.Despite the Oil mining taking place there the government has not yet succeeded to help them with that product.

The NTV journalists visited the area today and heard the plead of the residents who are now starving to death because the drought has worsened.According to the residents many of their cattles have already died and they have nothing else to do.They urged the government to hear their cry and help them or any well-wishers who are able to support them.
