Relief at Last!: President Ruto flags off relief food to drought-hit Kenyans

President William Ruto has today Monday, September 26, flagged off relief food to mitigate effects of drought in northern Kenya counties.

The President flagged off 20,000 bags of rice, 20, 000 bags of beans and assorted food items to famine-stricken families. 

“The next consignment will be on Friday and on a weekly basis we will assess the situation and see what this intervention will mean to the people and the way forward,” he said.

“It is my hope that this is the last time we are having this ceremony,” he added.

It is estimated that about 3.5 million Kenyans are severely affected by drought which has hit 23 counties.
