About 80 per cent of households in Isiolo County are facing starvation, a report by the National Drought and Management Authority (NDMA) reveals.

Last month’s drought early warning bulletin for the region released Wednesday during the County Steering Group meeting indicates that the dry spell has severely affected 100,000 people.

County NDMA Coordinator Lordman Lekalkuli said the region is affected by poor access to food occasioned by deteriorating crop and milk production, poor incomes and high food prices.
