Lack of food and water dehumanizes and makes one feel worthless

26 May 2021  |  Orato
The article is a first-person account by Kevin Lomenen, a student from the Turkana community in Kenya, who is studying journalism at the Multimedia University of Kenya. He discusses the severe food insecurity faced by people living in Kenya's arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL), exacerbated by drought and short rains. The Kenya Food Security Steering Group reports that 1.4 million people in ASAL counties are at risk of severe food shortages. Lomenen describes the hardships his community endures, including the loss of livestock, which is their primary source of livelihood. He emphasizes the importance of education as a means to overcome these challenges and is determined to use his education to help his community. The article also touches on the government's school feeding programs, which have increased school enrollment, and the shift towards crop farming as a way to achieve food security.

Fact-Checking claims on Kenya’s Diaspora Remittances

23 Jan 2020  |  PesaCheck
PesaCheck investigated claims made by President Uhuru Kenyatta during the 56th Jamhuri Day Celebrations regarding the growth of diaspora remittances in Kenya. The first claim that remittances grew by 10.9% between June 2018 and June 2019 was found to be false, as the actual cumulative inflows were lower than stated. The second claim that remittances have overtaken tea and coffee exports as the largest source of foreign exchange was found to be true, with data from the Central Bank of Kenya supporting this. The article also discusses the Kenya Diaspora Policy and the country's position as the third highest recipient of diaspora remittances in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to the World Bank.
