Impacts of Climate Change Takes Toll on Their Livelihoods
By Shadrack Kavilu for Gáldu
NAIROBI, Kenya -- Kenya’s smallest Indigenous tribe that resides in the world’s largest desert lake is in the verge of extinction as climate change and human activities continues unabated on the tributaries that feed the lake.
The El Molo tribe, arguably the smallest tribe in Kenya that inhabits in the Southeastern shores of Lake Turkana is an endangered tribe as competition for the lakes resources intensifies.
With receding water levels, prolonged drought and waves of insecurity in this part of northeastern province, the El molo tribe that entirely depends on fishing is an endangered tribe as the lake waters continues to recede.
