Event details
The new MPs must act swiftly to avoid a disaster. There is an acute shortage of water as pans, dams and wells have all dried up. Residents are today forced to trek long distances, approximately 30 to 50kms, to fetch water. It is unfortunate that MPs from the affected region are yet to issue a joint press statement to alert the Government, the international community and well wishers on the current situation. The worst hit areas are Wajir West, Mandera West, Mandera Central and Moyale. We thank NTV for highlighted the plight of Mandera West people recently.
