Welcome to Africa, where cows WORTH more than people!

by Staff writer



In Nigeria, it is the Fulani. In Kenya and some parts of Tanzania, the Maasai.

And then the Mundari in South Sudan.


Why has cattle herding become such a bloody affair in Africa?

Why do African herdsmen need to carry weapons?

Why would someone kill a fellow human to protect a cow?

Valued at over $500, it is easy to believe cattle is a prized asset, but are these domesticated ungulates of more value than a human?

Many fingers point to the suggestion that there is more than meets the eye in this strange relationship between African herdsmen and their cows.
