The government has warned of an impending drought in Mandera.
Poor long-term rains in April-May in Mandera is likely to cause a severe drought in the coming months, according to National Drought Management Authority (NDMA).
Speaking at NDMA offices in Mandera Town, the county drought information officer Hussein Ibrahim said only a few parts of the county received near-normal rainfall while others recorded no rainfall.
- The shortage triggered fears of a fresh cholera outbreak among residents of the sprawling Shauri Yako slums that were recently hit by the disease.
- Water shortage in the Lake side town started on Friday last week forcing most families to spend the weekend without a drop of water from their taps.
- Some families were forced to turn to the heavily polluted water as others collected water from their roofs following a heavy down pour on Sunday.
