Samuel Kikoso struggles to keep his cattle aliveWednesday, June 25, 2008
This short video tells the story of Samuel Kikoso after 300 of his cattle died of starvation in Magadi. He has lived for decades in his village of Ndope, where the nearby lakes have dried up. He says the grass that grows there is sparse and of a variety that is not sufficient for cows to graze on. He has 10 children and two wives to feed, and fears that the 50 cattle he has left will also die soon. Kikoso warns that the changes he has seen in the weather and in his village look set to get worse.
