“Give Us Back Our Lupita, We Will Release The Rain,” Tanzania Environment Minister Mocks


Tanzanian Minister of Environment January Mukamba has requested Kenyans to give the Lupita in exchange for rains.

This was on a light note after the Kenyan Meteorological department stated that the rains were stuck in Tanzania hence the prolonged drought.

Acting Kenya Meteorological Department Director Stella Aura claimed the rain bearing winds were “sitting” in Tanzania owing to low pressure systems to push them northwards to Kenya.

“The seasonal rains are caused by the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) but currently it has not moved northwards,” she said.
