The situation in Turkana. Hunger. Thousands are facing starvation.

And maybe if this guys let go of some of their backward traditions like cattle rustling and concentrated on better economic activities like crop farming (Israel does it, doesn’t it?), or even rearing cattle the modern way instead of nomadism. Going to school and finding jobs like other people is also an option.

And I believe we wouldn’t be talking about them come each year.

The Turkana menfolk spend so much time fighting and killing and stealing livestock from each other, and banditry which is never enough to save them when famine strikes.
