ISSUES

kenyans in hunger stricken areas will not go hungry and  the food to be given to them will be sourced/bought within the country.the authorities want that people be able and be enabled to produce their own food and not really be given food,though it can be done as a first aid before necessary aid arrives.

there is a problem of water in the country,even in the 80s,and the govt tried to put up dams to conserve water in the rainy seasons in many areas countrywide.Germany and the World Bank gave lots of money for such developments to go on
