The herdsmen crisis is a WEST AFRICAN phenomenon, as the desertification of the Sahara accelerates, forcing herders to migrate ever southwards to graze their cattle. See Ghana News: Livelihoods under threat as herdsmen invade Kwamang farmlands at Kwamang It is a big problem in Ghana now. Just google ''Ghana herdsmen''. They even killed some Fulani herdsmen in southern Ghana last week. In South Sudan yesterday, 40 peole were killed. According to the news, ''this conflict... stemmed from disagreements between Arab herdsmen and non-Arab farmers in South Darfur.'' So this is a region-wide issue caused by the encroaching Sahara and climate change. But instead of us to recognise the issue for what it is, and co-operate to handle it well, we are screaming that it is a ''long-planned Fulani takeover of the South!!'' And now we are looking to start fighting and killing! Who did this to us?
