Eye on Corruption investigative journalist, Iqra Salah, travelled to Turkana County on several occasions to document the story of families ravaging in hunger and poverty, in a country where the government through the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has put in place a system to support such families from the severities of draught. Iqra’s story however, collected information of misfortune in families struggling to survive because NDMA’s hunger safety net programme is not benefitting many families.
In Addition, the BBC journalist, highlights possible loss of public funds into individuals pockets, where the Auditor general queried over Ksh 10billion that was unaccounted for. Watch HERE.Courtesy of BBC.
