Kitui is not all that dry by the way. There's more than enough water for sustainable animal husbandry. The are is crisscrossed by rivers and experience flush flooding once a year. Shida sio maji, shida ni utilization.
Kuna petrol station flani Emali just before junction ya kuenda Oloitokittok, iko na kahoteli on the side. Nothing pretentious, just a nice solid practical place. I am addicted to that place. Hio mbuzi wueh! I recommend dry fry na ugali. Mbuzi hua nyama moja underrated sana.
