Rain or Sun, the Kapchorwa Farmer Suffers

Earlier in the week, residents of Kapchorwa district were celebrating the returns of the rain but News-Hapa is now receiving reports of destruction of crops and property as a result of heavy storms. Alfred Chepsikor who yesterday reported destruction of a widow’s home during a heavy storm, today reports that the rain also led to widespread destruction of farmer’s crops in Chepsombe subcounty.

The rain were preceded by a month long dry spell that farmers say caused the stunting of crops.

“People need help from government,” Chepsikor says.
