We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Embassy of Qatar has donated famine relief food to 300 families affected by on-going drought in Kajiado.

Ambassador Ali Bin Abdallah led a team of people from Qatar Charity Fund in donating the food on Tuesday in Kajiado town.

Abdallah said this is a time to identify with starving families in the region during the drought period, adding that many people could be going hungry due to lack of food.

“We expect these donations to reach the needy in the society and to serve the purpose it was intended for,” said Abdallah.

He estimated the cost of the foodstuff at Sh2.4 million.

Governor David Nkedianye thanked the embassy for empathising with the starving people in the county, adding that a “friend in need is a friend indeed”.

Nkedianye said during the drought period most water points have been affected and is currently the cause of heightened human/wildlife conflict.

He said his government has made efforts to mitigate the shortage of water by assisting the local communities with tankers to ferry fresh water from other areas.

“This is a natural calamity which has affected livestock farmers greatly. It is our prayer that rains come early so as to save threatened lives,” said Nkedianye.

P.S Typo Correction – The estimated the cost of the foodstuff was Sh2.4 million not Sh24 million as earlier noted.
