Kenyans living in three counties in the north of the East African nation risk starvation because of low rainfall that has led to drought, the government has warned.
It is working with the county authorities to “support the affected families”, Devolution Minister Eugene Wamalwa says.
Domestic animals belonging to the pastoral communities in Marsabit, Turkana and Mandera counties have died because of severe drought.
This means the areas are classed as being in the “alarm stage”.
Those affected will receive support in the form of cash transfers and water provision.
The minister has urged all the other counties to adopt climate change laws to be able to fight such calamities.
