One Mursi man told Survival International how the process of villagization is destroying his family. ‘The government is throwing our sorghum in the river.  It has cleaned up the crops and put them in the river. I only have a few sacks left…We are waiting to die. We are crying. When the government collects people into one village there will be no place for crops and my children will be hungry and have no food.’

A Suri man also said, ‘They cleared the land. Why did the government sell our land? There is no grass for the cattle. People are hungry…. We are worried about fodder. We have become angry and hopeless.’

The Survival article :

NB – Ogaden People has been treated by the Ethiopian soldiers worse than this and that is why International media is prohibited to go freely into Ogaden.
