~ This Al Jazeera article was published in the Star of Nairobi. It provides examples explaining why cattle raiding among central and northern Kenya pastoral groups has become more violent.


The proliferation of assault weapons in Kenya from such neighboring countries as Somalia and South Sudan has introduced them into cattle herding, with armed raiders exchanging fire with armed herders.

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
