A few weeks ago I decided to go and do a story on the famine that was ravaging Ukambani hoping that it would touch some souls. It was in the middle of the Orange/Banana madness and there was nobody who commented on that issue. I met men and women who were on the last strectch before they embark on a long famine. there was still some optimism and i met people struggling to plant because it had drizzled that week. their hope was on the rain-fed agriculture and if that crop failed they would not survive the coming year. I will soon be returning to see what became of that crop and follow up the story. Merry Xmas and happy new year.
