Askari in Isiolo

Almost every building, house or office in Kenya, is providing work for askari’s or soldiers./ They are guarding Kenya and I would not be surprised that a majority of working Kenyans are working as an askari in the Services sector. More than 80 percent is working in agriculture.

Drought in Northern Kenya

Just back from Northern Kenya for reports. Because of failing rains, dams have dried. Some people spend days travelling to waterpoints. On the way, I met this young herds man, looking for greener pastures. He has been travelling with his cattle for days with his herd.
