A war with bows and arrows in Kenya (18 pics)

Posted in Pictures   15 Oct 2009   / 9516 views

It happened in March 2008. Post-election clashes between tribes re-awakened ancient ethnic rivalries and they used bows and arrows to fight instead of the usual machetes. They said it was a more deadly alternative.
It’s very impressive and unusual. More than 20 people died in the fighting and a man was even shot in the face…
The pictures that impressed me the most are the ones where you see the Maasai warriors with members of the Kalenjin tribe on a hill overlooking the Olmelil Valley.

pila24, that is more like the stone age. What they needed was a good cavalry charge down the hill.
