Mr Chatterjee said that this is the second appeal made on behalf of Kenya; the first was in March, however, only 43 per cent of the monies required was raised, prompting the UN to make another appeal. Already, Kenya’s Demographic Health Survey reports that one in every four children (26 per cent) are undernourished. Of the 5.6 million— which is 12 per cent of Kenya’s entire population— that have been affected, 2.6 million face severe food insecurity.
The silence is hardly surprising. This is the clinic where men come to break down in private to a fellow man, about the disintegration of what the African manholds so dear — his sexuality — with the hope of having it rectified. Men in their 20s and 30s, flock this clinic and other private ones in the city, and the diagnosis is reduced sperm count, the greatest yard stick of male fertility. Dr Gitobu Mburugu, who heads the KNH clinic, told HealthyNation that he sees at least two patients every week.
The latest Regional Supply and Market Outlook East Africa, by USAid’s Famine Early Warning Systems, shows that the region’s supply of maize is expected to fall to 1.2 million tonnes, from an average of 2.7 million tonnes, with Uganda — the only regional country with a surplus — expected to record a drop to 1.03 million tonnes, from 1.18 million tonnes.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
