Famine and drought

Maybe there is someone out there who might take the time to explain the two the similarity and difference. Once again BBC Radio 4 reporter was out in Kenya and she was in Wajir which sounded like Wazir but that is nothing compared to Dr Wahome Karanja who the reporter said WAHOME (as in nyumbani),it is quite interesting listening to Kenyan voices like Raphael Tuju I remembered him when he was doing Voice of Kenya news. I am sure this like carbon-dating.

There is food in Kenya but there are those who are buying and selling out to some Southern African states, does anyone remember yellow posho? I guess thats why I have problems with polenta. A rambling post today

You know, I also heard 'Wahome' pronounced 'WA-HOME' - were we listening to the same programme?:)

The name mispronounciation is really funny,LOL! In college we had a German prof who had a hard time pronouncing the 'W' at the begining of most African names & he put the German "V" instead so there was Vesonga, Wangari, Vambua & Vekesa:))

The famine in Kenya is very much man-made (read: government neglect of it's people) and I wonder what kind of conscience the ministers & asst.ministers have to ride in those expensive cars, lead a life of luxury while a section of the population is dying of hunger. Shame!

famine is a phenomenon in which a large percentage of the population of a region or country are so undernourished that death by starvation becomes increasingly common.A drought or an extreme dry periodic climate is an extended period where water availability falls(the people are not starving) what we have in kenya is both what the has in mali was just a famine because the locusts had eaten everything water and rainfall was still available .hope that answers your question

International Women’s Day is on Thursday March 8. I am writing to ask if you would like to write a short post about a woman you would like to celebrate or honour on this day – this could your mother, sister, a famous artist, politician, activist, friend, etc. The post should just be a few lines – no more than 5 or 6 and will then be included in the African Women’s roundups on Global Voices Online that week.
