Mandera steps up fight on locusts

The  Mandera  county  government  has embarked on spraying insecticides to get rid of locusts that are destroying every vegetation.

The  County Executive for Agriculture, Mohammed  Johara  while flagging off the exercise warned that any locust invasion was an international disaster.

Johara  said the locusts that came from Somalia were fast spreading and were now migrating to the neighbouring counties of Wajir and Marsabit.

She  called on the national government and other development partners to join the fight against the menace.

The  county executive speaking on Wednesday in Mandera town said the county administration left alone cannot manage to completely wipe out the locusts.
