Tanzania tribe evicted from ancestral land

6 years ago80 views

The Tanzanian government has ordered thousands of Masai tribesmen to abandon traditional grazing lands to make way for a conservation site.

But the Maasai are refusing to leave their ancestral land. They say the real reason they are being forced out is to give a Dubai-based hunting company exclusive access.
Wildlife Instead, the hunting company, says that it will bring clients in for a six-month season and the Maasai can graze their cattle out of season. However, researchers say that the livestock are a part of the area's ecosystem.
Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from Lolyondo in northern Tanzania.
