Worry as Floods Ravage East Africa

Excessive rains are raising fears of a looming food shortage following the destruction of farmlands by floods, which have ravaged the region for more than two months now. The area is already battling to contain locusts which pose a threat to agriculture. Several people have been left dead and thousands displaced after the bursting of river and lake banks.
