Potential food shortages loom in Kenya

Experts are warning of possible food shortages because many farmers in the Rift Valley Province are not planting grain crops for fear of election violence similar to that which followed the December 2007 presidential election when more than 1,100 people were killed and hundreds of thousands uprooted from their homes in the months that followed. Travellers should monitor food shortage alerts if planning to visit or travel in Kenya in the coming months.
