Citizen TV Yvonne Okwara attacks DP Ruto live on air

The hunger stricken counties news have been a great debate in Kenya as the leaders still deny that there re no lives which are being lost due to drought. Annoyed with the news, Citizen TV news anchor, Yvonne Okwara dismissed the comments of Deputy President, William Ruto as petty politics.

Ruto was earlier quoted by the media claiming that reports revealing  deaths arising from hunger was fake news and that the state was yet to verify those claims. Okwara said; “It is unfortunate that the government officials have to expend so much energy defending the situation that we have comparisons between this drought and those of other years is really missing the point.

Take this for example, the deputy president now says that the country is not facing a food crisis but rather a challenge in food. Well, whatever we want to call it, the people in Turkana and Baringo don’t have enough of it.” She also condemned CS Eugene Wamalwa for not investigating claims that 17 people had died due to hunger.
