Kenya’s drought: media coverage

Many parts of Kenya have now been without rain for three years.

As a result of the drought, animals are dying in their thousands, and people are fighting to stay alive.

Child malnutrition

Voice of America recently visited Kenya with Concern. They have written about the troubles facing the Masaai community in Kajiado, southern Kenya: "At least half of the area's cows have died, more cases of child malnutrition are surfacing, and attempts to feed the population are meeting with mixed results."

Affecting pastoralists

BBC News has also been covering this issue. In this comprehensive article, Will Ross looks at how the drought is affecting the pastoralists in Turkana district in north-west Kenya.
