East Africa: famine

Yebo Gogo writes that there is a famine in East Africa…”A drought is plaguing East Africa and people are starving. The government of Zanzibar is rationing water. The Kenyan press has dubbed it the “Christmas Famine,” and Nairobi recently announced it would buy all available stocks of corn to distribute.”
