On September 25, 2018 In Latest News

President Uhuru Kenyatta today said that the Government will continue enhancing drought mitigation measures to ensure all those affected are assisted. He said the ongoing food and water relief, animal off-take and cash transfer programs are constantly being enhanced to support Kenyans to overcome the current hard conditions. The President said the Government continues to expand the relief efforts so that no needy Kenyan is left out during the hard times. “I take this opportunity to assure all Kenyans that the Government is doing all that is in its power to ensure that people in need are assisted,” said the President at State House, Nairobi. The President spoke when he witnessed delivery of donations from the UAE in support of the Government’s drought mitigation measures. The middle-eastern country donated 150 tonnes of assorted foods worth Sh20 million to be distributed in drought affected regions. The President said he appreciates foreign and local partners who have responded to the Government’s appeal for support after he declared the drought a national disaster. The Government has already doubled relief efforts to cover 3 million people, up from the initial 1.3 million. The Government has also enhanced water trucking in the 23 arid and semi arid counties worst affected by the drought. President Kenyatta recently gave a directive for all relief efforts to be streamlined under the Devolution Ministry to ensure synergy in delivering aid to needy Kenyans.
