In a recent blog post on udadisi, Leiyo Singo describes how the recent water scarcities in Dar es Salaam have provided the pretext for public accusations against pastoralists, in which prominent politicians victimized them for the shortages. Reflecting on this discourse, Singo concludes: „The future is pastoralist. By this, I mean that values of solidarity, simplicity, care, sharing, cooperation not competition, and putting wellbeing/wholeness before the reductionist economic growth nonsense. Pastoralists know how.“
