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.
The reactions that followed this tweet left many in laughter at what Kenyans were willing to exchange for the rain, Lupita was not one of them.
Here are some of the reactions:
Jamani Makamba kwa niaba ya ujirani mtupe hata Kama Mvua ya wiki mbili tuko tayari kuwapa naibu was raisi na viongozi wote wa upinzani. Already Uganda washachukua Migingo island katika ziwa Victoria na hawajatupa chochote. Msichana wetu mtuachieni

Let me try your language.
Bwana mheshimiwa, kwa niaba ya wakenya wanaohitaji mvua, sio tu kwa ukulima, bali pia kwa uvukishaji wa watu na mkokoteni, twaomba tuwape babake. Mkiitisha Lupita, Jamhuri ya Mexico nao watapeana masharti na huenda ikawa kesi ya Umoja wa kimataifa.
