The news was received by Kenyans who live in fear of the invasion as they watch locusts move from county to county within the country.

Many had questions like, was our own government prepared for the invasion? If not, why? And if they were, what went wrong?


China, which recently shocked many after they announced that they would build a 1000 bed hospital in six days, once again showed how quick they react to disasters.

Locust invasion has reportedly caused food shortage in India and Pakistan after swarms destroyed crops in the countries.
