Pictures of Kenyans dying of starvation in Turkana and Baringo, have moved many to tears.

KOT have been blasting the authorities for ignoring early warning systems and now the situation has escalated. Scores have died from starvation.


Even celebs have added their voices to the demands.

Many celebrities have spoken out, others have donated and some have started a hashtag, #wecannotignore.

So just like every other drought period in Kenya, a paybill number has been released for Kenyans to donate and help buy food for those starving in Turkana.

Gabu and Frasha from P unit are against this paybill. What they want is for the government to step up. Corruption is too much in Kenya and they claim instead of the government using the funds set aside for disasters, they are seeking the help of Kenyans and who knows if the money will all be used for that cause.

Gabu posted:

this government is used to taking advantage of us too much. they do not give us jobs but still want donations from us. I am totally opposed to any Kenyan straining his or her pocket further to throw some cash to M-Changa or Paybill account to feed Kenyans starving in Turkana, I wish to incite the readers of this post to desist from doing so.

Frasha who was vying for a seat in the current regime under Machakos County commented saying:

I agree 100% but let me say this change shall not come from IG and what’s app groups its high time the youth realized they are the majority and they have the power to change this country. How can we be talking of drought in the 21st century yet countries which are deserts give us relief food e.g. Israel yet our country is known in the world to be an agricultural hub. Youth get agitated get mad get concerned wake-up and fight for this country. This country needs you #wakeupkenyanyouth #itstartswithme

Gabu was so angry that he broke down the amount of money Kenya makes in a year just seeking for answers as to why nothing is being done to save a fellow Kenyan.

Tragedies that have left Kenyans in shock the past few days

Seeing the pictures on social media and in the news breaks many Kenyans hearts because drought and starvation should be a thing of the past. Hopefully, the government will hear the many cries.
