The government says at least 2.6 million Kenyans in 24 counties are facing starvation as a result of drought. A significant number of those affected (623,000) are children while 69,000 of them are pregnant women and lactating mothers, according to government spokesman Cyrus Oguna. The worst affected County is Turkana, where 250,000 children aged below five in three sub-counties including Turkana North, Turkana South, and Laisamis are facing acute malnutrition.
