Abstract

Ruto, from the Isiolo district in northern Kenya, says he lost more than a 100 of his Ankole cattle owing to a three-year drought. "This is what I'm left with.

As he points to a ground littered with an unusually large number of sun-bleached bones, he says this is the worst drought ever and is meant to wipe out the entire indigenous breed.
