Kenya Drought Kills 3.5 Million Head of Cattle, Nation Reports

Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) -- A drought in Kenya killed livestock worth 64.2 billion shillings ($690 million), including 3.5 million head of Zebu cattle, the Daily Nation reported, citing Livestock Development Permanent Secretary Kenneth Lusaka.

A further 2.7 million goats and 2.5 million sheep have died as a result of the lack of rain, the Nairobi-based newspaper said. The Livestock Development Ministry needs 2 billion shillings to avert a “catastrophe” in the agriculture industry, it said.
