Politics, pastureland, conflict, War has no eyes Borana Oromo African proverbs





Fighting between the Borana and Gharri tribes historically erupts inside Ethiopia and Somalia along the Kenyan border, over water and grazing land. Both tribes are traditional pastoralists. The hard red earth shows through the thin grass of the sun-baked landscape, a wide expanse of thorny scrub, flat-topped thorn-trees and tall red anthills. Like almost all pastoralists in Africa, Borana men habitually go armed to defend their flocks but many are displaced.
