Abstract : This paper analyses the causes of the 1984 drought in Kenya and how the Kenya government reacted to the situation. Kenya had previously enjoyed good climatic conditions, and the rain had enabled her to produce good harvests. The country's economy, it should be noted, depends largely on agriculture. The manner in which the Kenya government handled the famine which was caused by the 1984 drought, should serve as an example for other drought stricken countries to follow. But the political atmosphere in the respective countries will determine the degree of success there.
