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?

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