Yatta Constituency is one of the six constituencies that constitute the expansive Machakos County. It is located in the Arid and semi- arid (ASAL) regions of Kenya and receives erratic rains of less than 500mm annually. The temperatures range from 10oC to 28oC. The altitude of Yatta ranges between 700-800 meters above sea level befitting the bill for a hot tropical climate where evaporation exceeds rainfall. Inspite of the tough climatic conditions, the constituency plays host to approximately 148,000 people.
