Tired KOT unite in refusing to raise funds to feed starving Kenyans in Turkana

Kenyans on Twitter have rejected a plea by Red Cross to help raise funds to aid hundreds of fellow citizens who are dying of starvation in several counties.

The Kenya Red Cross had on Thursday launched an appeal seeking to raise Sh824,554,720 to assist hunger-stricken residents in Wajir, Tana River, West Pokot, Tharaka Nithi, Samburu, Nyeri, Marsabit, Laikipia, Mandera, Lamu, Kitui, Kilifi, Isiolo, Garissa, Embu, Baringo and Turkana counties.

Red Cross Secretary General Abbas Gullet said they will give preference to Tiaty in Baringo county, Loyangalani in Turkana county and Wajir regions which are the most affected by the famine and drought included.

However, on social media platforms, angry Kenyans said they will not donate to cover up government’s inability to shield its citizens from famine and drought bearing in mind the many corruption scandals and Deputy President William Ruto’s refusal to acknowledge the hunger crisis.

As reported by The Sauce, Kenyan singer Akothee recently put out a pay bill number on her social media in order to get contributions to feed the Kenyans in drought-stricken areas like Turkana. She managed to raise over a million shillings but some of her fellow celebs like P-Unit’s Gabu, Frasha and Willis Raburu were not having it as they urged their fans not to contribute.

In true Kenyan fashion, the hashtag #RedCrossTumechoka was the number one trend on Friday in the country with many chiming in on why they were not going to contribute to alleviate the situation and things that the government should do instead.
