THE WORST DROUGHT IN YEARS

The prolonged absence of sufficient rainfall has hit the land hard. The scorching heat beats relentlessly upon parched fields, crops wither and yields diminish, painting a picture of uncertainty.

The rain-fed fields have always depended on the rhythm of the seasons. Everyone knew that rainy season was coming and preparation was done. However, the severe drought conditions have ruined this delicate balance, depriving crops of essential moisture, stunting growth and reducing yields to less or nothing.

The impact of the drought does not end with scarcity of food alone. The water reservoirs are not full, forcing the authorities to implement certain measurements including rationing electricity. With hydro electric power generation disturbed by reducing water levels, communities are faced with the reality of limited access to electricity (shut-offs starting at 8 hours per day) resulting in disrupted daily routines.

We may not know what tomorrow brings but what we do know is that God’s providence is beyond imagination and so we are thankful.
