The drought situation in the country due to failed rains has exposed many Kenyan families to food insecurity, and about 3.5 million people are facing high levels of acute food insecurity.
President William Ruto outlined several measures during the 59th Mashujaa Day celebrations to provide a long-term solution to the perpetual drought and food insecurity problem in the country, including the fertilizer subsidy and the sinking of dams to support irrigation.
