Baringo: Nursing mother collapses, dies due to hunger
The drought situation in parts of the country seems to be getting out of hand with two deaths linked to the drought situation being reported in Baringo. one being of a nursing mother who collapsed and died on Thursday as she went to search for water, leaving behind a three-week old child.
According to locals, Emily Sote Chebon collapsed after trekking several kilometres from her home in Ng’aratuko village, Baringo North to draw water from a borehole. Lack of adequate food and water is believed to have been a factor in her death; her last meal believed to have been porridge eaten the day before her death.
Her husband Henry Chesut has now been left to fend for their brood alone and has appealed for assistance.
Should medical examinations confirm the two died from complications arising out of starvation, it would indicate that the drought experienced across the country is fast moving towards the emergency stage.
According to the Kenya Red Cross, 5.1 million Kenyans are in need of humanitarian assistance. And while the government and humanitarian organisations may have scaled up food distribution and cash transfers, for Emily’s children, it’s too little, too late.
Insecurity in the region has also compounded the situation with families afraid to venture out in search of food and water.
