Extractions: The Motherland Africa Area: 30,357,362 sq km Population: 721,368,251 There are more than 50 independent countries in Africa and on the islands off its coasts. Together, they make up more than one third of the membership of the United Nations. In 1991 Egyptian Deputy Prime Minister Boutros Boutros-Ghali became the first African and the first Arab to serve as secretary-general of the United Nations. After the conclusion of World War II, the African people gained their independence from European countries that had controlled most of the continent since the 19th century. France and the United Kingdom had the largest colonial empires, though Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, and Italy also had African possessions. By the end of 1990, only South Africa remained under the control of a white minority government; even there, President F.W. de Klerk in 1990 took steps toward clearing away obstacles to negotiations for a new constitution. The African countries have developed political and economic relations with nations throughout the world. Many of the world's essential minerals, including copper, gold, and uranium, are mined in Africa. The continent's extensive river system represents one of the world's major potential sources of hydroelectric power. Long before the colonial period, there were great African kingdoms whose rulers presided over magnificent courts. Their merchants traded in gold, salt, and other goods with faraway countries, often traveling vast distances over caravan routes across the plains and deserts. The art, language, and, especially, the music of the Western world have been affected by African culture. Jazz has its root in Central and West African rhythms.

Extractions: Population : 4 million (most in Ethiopia, about 90,000 in Kenya) NARRATIVE PROFILE Location : The Borana are part of a very much larger group of about 4 to 5 million persons of whom approximately 90,000 live in north central Kenya with the balance in Ethiopia. They are related to the Oromo in Somalia also. They live in a large area of barren northern Kenya. About 44% of the Kenya Borana live in Marsabit District, into Tana River District, Garissa District and in Moyale District. The heaviest concentration live in the Sololo area of Marsabit District and in Moyale District. Those in Isiolo District are concentrated in Merti and Garba Tula. History: The Borana are one of the resulting groups of Oromo migrants who left the southern highlands of Ethiopia in the 1500's. Most of the Borana and related peoples live in Ethiopia. The Oromo had migrated east but were pushed back by the Somali leading to a greater southern expansion. There are almost 4 million Borana people, most living in Ethiopia. Identity: The word spelled Borana is pronounced with the final vowel silent. For this reason in many English sources the word is spelled

Extractions: Blackwing is a small company specializing in personalized safaris at an affordable cost. All safaris are personally guided by the owner David Mascall and take a maximum of 3 persons. For details on cost, transport, accomodation, etc., please refer to Blackwing's page The following are suggestions for Kenya safari itineraries. It must be emphasised that the following itineraries only show some of the possibilities, and customised trips can easily be arranged. For those with very limited time (5 or 6 days), some of the legs (A and D) can be taken on their own, but they are designed so that they can be taken in series, with the Wildlife Safari (legs AD) taking 11 days or so (more days can easily be added if required), and the Complete Safari (legs ABCD) taking a minimum of 21 days. The legs are tried and tested and include the best wildlife areas, show the most unspoilt country with spectacular scenary, and we visit the indigenous nomads who have been virtually uninfluenced by the West. There are marvelous opportunities for photography at close quarters... or simply enjoy! All trips are very personal - I meet all of you at the airport and drive you in a reliable 4-wheel drive safari vehicle. We mostly camp in my own private fully equipped camp sites with my trained staff (but on occasion we stay in a rest-house or lodge). From these we take game-watching or other forays, returning for hot showers at noon, and later sundowners and yarns round the campfire followed by a full three-course dinner.

Extractions: T ourist publications describe Kenya's beauty in glowing terms that the skeptic could naturally suspect. In this case, though, they tell the truth, maybe even under estimate a bit. From stars that hang like small moons, to lakes pink with flamingos; from the Obedears Mountains to the valleys where elephants, ibis, and wild antelope play, to the view from the mountains around the Rift Valley; Kenya took our breath away. Kenya is a land of contrasts, both in geography and population. Her topography includes stark desert in the north, lush farmland in the central and western regions, thick forest in the mountains. And among its people, though some have attained and are attaining wealth, most Kenyans still live in great poverty. But as our team traveled through this nation, the thing that struck us most is that Kenya is facing a crucial hour. For 34 years since her independence, God has kept Kenya politically safe from the turmoil that has swirled around her. God has blessed her with stability and with a government that has been friendly to the Church. You may have heard of some turmoil arising as scheduled elections once again draw near. Yet we were constrained by the Holy Spirit that Kenya's future does not rest in the hands of her political leaders, it rests with the Church.

It is most especially this undeniable presence of religious diversity which motivates the task of inter-faith dialogue and which led to the setting-up of the Inter Faith Network for the UK. The Cambridge Inter Faith Group, meeting monthly at Wesley Church, is a member organisation of this national body. So what is inter-faith dialogue? Put very simply there are two basic approaches which may be adopted by religious people in their relationships with each other, either individually or communally. The first is an exclusivism which effectively shuts the door to neighbourly contact. This is a sectarian reaction. It may be held through fear of the strange or, for example, be the position of those who are convinced that, since their own beliefs and practices alone enshrine the Truth, there is no need to listen to or learn from other religious traditions. In this case contact, if it happens at all, may be limited to the attempt to convert their adherents from error. The alternative to such a closed solution is characterised not simply by a passive tolerance of others' beliefs or ways of living, but by an active attempt both to be in contact with people of other religions and to begin and sustain dialogue with them.

The study begins by describing the regional attributes and theoretical dimensions of the problem. A historical review is to familarize the reader with longitudinal context of social exchange and group conflict. We then proceed to focus on three commodities whose circulation has significantly increased during the 1990s: firearms, livestock, and miraathe socially consumed twigs of Catha edulis . These commodities form a triangle where livestock is identified with production markets, weapons with inputs, and miraa with social consumption. The conclusion evaluates the role of trade within a problem-solving framework for identifying sectoral policy priorities. Part I: Introduction This working paper examines the influence of markets on contemporary conflict and its management in the region spanning Kenya's northern highland-lowland interface. Current economic policies prioritize free markets as the engine of African development, and designate the private sector as the antidote to poor governance. Commerce promotes conflict as well as stability. Markets are important, as this test case demonstrates, but so are other institutions that regulate production, exchange, and group relations.

Extractions: This paper tells the story of the Waata, former Oromo hunter-gatherers of East and Northeast Africa, who specialized in elephant hunting. It relates how the Waata way of life was brought to an end in the colonial period due to the enactment of wildlife conservation laws and the creation of national parks. Through this policy and that of the containment of ethnic groups to tribal reserves in Kenya, the Waata lost their place in the regional system of production. As a result, they lost their autonomy and became servile members of the Boorana and Gabra Oromo pastoral groups with whom they had traditionally interacted. They thus suffered both external, state, and internal, cultural, discrimination. The paper describes the Waata struggle for self-determination in postcolonial Kenya and reflects on the problems of advocating their cause, both from an emic and etic point of view. The story is told emically, from the inside, from the point of view of a Waata social activist from Northern Kenya (Bashuna 1993; forthcoming), and etically, from the outside, from the perspective of a social anthropologist (Kassam 1986; 2000). Both researchers have been analysing the problem of the Waata in different ways. Their present collaboration is the outcome of a dialogue that began in Kenya over a decade ago. The paper also reflects on this dialogical process and on the problems of advocating the Waata cause.

Extractions: hr = escape(window.location.href); Modern Culture Kenyan Modern Culture was born of myriad sources and influences both new and old. Despite the many and varied influences that have shaped Kenyan society, the culture in Kenya has become truly and purely Kenyan. If any one thing of Kenya speaks of this unique character, it is the modern melding of traditional societies and culture. In Kenya it is possible to leave Nairobi, a city with a thriving business heart powered by the latest information technology, and drive in just a few hours to a place where life is lived in accordance to tradition and custom, where warriors armed with spears drive cattle into thorn brush enclosures to protect them from lions at night. In Kenya the modern and the traditional live side by side, and at times the lines blur. For many visitors to Kenya, this is evident within minutes of arrival. Among the busy urban traffic, the median strips of fresh grass along the airport road are a popular place for Maasai herdsmen to graze their cattle. Some people lament the gradual change in lifestyles, and loss of many customs and traditions in deference to modern life and values.

Extractions: Masai Mara escarpment and plains full of wildebeest and rare black rhino. It is this diversity of habitats and the geographical location of Kenya between several different evolutionary centers that makes Kenya such a wildlife gem. In addition, there are numerous opportunities for cultural experiences with some of the indigenous people. Many of these tribes such as the Maasai, Samburu, Boran, Rendille, Turkana, Gabbra and Swahili still retain much of their traditional customs. Tented Camp There is also a selection of private homes (which we call bush homes), which offer a limited number of accommodations on private game ranches that are often adjacent to parks and reserves. The standards of accommodations and service in these homes are among the finest to be found in Africa. They are all creatively built with local materials and fit in wonderfully with the surrounding environment. Many of these places are owner run and managed and are situated on or near tribal lands allowing one to experience the local African people in their everyday lives.
