kenya drought


22.07.2011 17:45 EDT
Every news channel and newspaper has been highlighting the drought situation in East Africa especially nother side of Kenya.If its somalia we all atleast understand its all because of the ongoing wars,they are to blame for their own famine situation but what about Kenya?I live in Kenya and this place has plenty of rain good for agriculture.The nothern side of kenya has the pastoralist communities and its the area with drought.This situation is a result of their own ignorance and being naive.These communities keep large breed of traditional cattle wich are of no help to economy nor to them.Its all because of their beliefs,they may die while they can just feed on the animals just because the do not want to reduce their 'wealth',this wealth as claimed has led to soil erosion creating semi desert and desert in the region due to large herds of animals.This communities fear change and are afraid to think.should they have just kept 5 grade cattle and cultivate their land,the situation could have be averted but ignorance has left them suffer the consiquences of their actions,long gone culture is an illness of the community.
