Baringo drought has taken a new twist after Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i revealed that the Chief who reported deaths arising from the drought in Baringo County had been fired a long time ago.
Speaking at an interview in a local media, the CS stated that the ex-administrator did not represent the government anymore.
Matiang’i was also adamant that no life had been lost yet due to the hunger pangs in the North Rift region.
“The chief purporting to report on the drought situation was fired a long time ago. The County Commissioner in Baringo has confirmed that no deaths have been occasioned by current drought situation,” Matiang’i affirmed.
