NAIROBI, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
warned on Tuesday that severe drought is pushing up food prices sharply in East
Africa.

 

According to the FAO's latest Food Price Monitoring and Analysis Bulleting
(FPMA), soaring cost of basic staples is an extra challenge for pastoralists as
livestock prices fall.

 

"Drought throughout East Africa has sharply curbed harvests and pushed the
prices of cereals and other staple foods to unusually high levels, posing a
heavy burden to households and special risks for pastoralists in the region,"
the FAO said.

 

The UN agency said insufficient rainfall in most areas of the sub-region has
put enormous strain on livestock and their keepers.

 

It said poor livestock body conditions due to pasture and water shortages and
forcible culls mean animals command lower prices, leaving pastoralists with even
less income to purchase basic foodstuffs.

 

Local prices of maize, sorghum and other cereals are near or at record levels
in swathes of Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda and the Tanzania,
according to the report.

 

Poor rainfall in recent months has dented farm output in the sub-region,
where food stocks were already depleted by the strong El Nino phenomenon that
ended only last year

 

According to the FAO, Somalia's maize and sorghum harvests are estimated to
be 75 percent down from their usual level, and some 6.2 million people, more
than half of the country's total population, now face acute food insecurity with
the majority of those most affected living in rural areas.

 

"In Kenya, where eastern and coastal lowlands as well as some western areas
of the Rift Valley all suffered below-average rainfall, maize prices are up by
around 30 percent, with the increase somewhat contained somewhat thanks to
sustained imports from Uganda," the FAO said.

 

The report said beans now cost 40 percent more in Kenya than a year earlier,
while in Uganda, maize prices are now up to 75 percent higher than a year
earlier.

 

Prices of maize increased by 23 percent in January in Mogadishu, capital of
Somalia, and in key market towns of central and southern Somalia, coarse grain
prices in January have doubled from a year earlier.

 

In South Sudan, food prices are now two to four times above their levels a
year earlier, exacerbated by ongoing insecurity and the significant depreciation
of the local currency.

 

"With an earlier than usual depletion of household stocks during the coming
lean season and preliminary weather forecasts raising concerns for the
performance of the next rainy season, prices are likely to further escalate in
the coming months," it said.

 

The report said shortages of pasture and water caused livestock deaths and
reduced their body mass, prompting herders to sell animals while they can, which
is also occurring in drought-wracked southern Ethiopia.

 

"This also pushes up the prices of milk, which is, for instance, up 40
percent on the year in Somalia's Gedo region," it said.

NAIROBI, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Kenya said Tuesday it has embarked on a mission
to charm nations that have announced their boycott of the 2017 World Under-18
Athletics Championships scheduled for July to review their stand over security
fears.

 

Government spokesman, Eric Kiraithe, told a media briefing in Nairobi that a
high level team of diplomats has been assembled to reach out to nations that are
doubtful of the security of their citizens when their athletes attend the games,
and assure them of their safety during the five-day event which will run from
July 12-16.

 

"The team, which will be coordinated by the ministry of foreign affairs, will
use all diplomatic channels available to reach out to those states that have
announced their pulling out of the championships due to one reason or another,"
the spokesman told reporters after attending an inter-ministerial committee
meeting.
