The drought not only affected Kenyans but also its wildlife after water points and vegetation dried up.
" It was great to see almost all types of animals at the same waterhole but at the same time very sad with insufficient water. Water is life and we need more water until March when we are expecting rains," he added.
This was after the county had been ravaged by drought that had even forced President Uhuru Kenyatta to declare it a national disaster.
