Since February 2022 the Tanzanian governement is evicting the Masaï people from Ngorongoro and Loliondo with the excuse that there are too many people and too much cattle in this region. There are 150.000 persons and their cattle for 8.300 km2.
This eviction is against Human Rights, the Masaï people are Tanzanian citizens, and this land was given to them after their eviction from Serengeti in 1958. The Masaï tribe has been able to live together with the wild animals for years, they even protect the animals from poachers. They respect nature as they live in the nature on it’s conditions.
PAMINA is concerned by this eviction of the Masaï people as we participate in the construction of the School St Luke in Endulen. For the time beeing all transport of construction materials within the conservation area is prohibited.
PAMINA has given a conference at NooToos in Strasbourg on October 15th upon this alarming situation of the Masaï in Ngorongoro and Loliondo.
Another conference has been given in Saverne on November 12th on the same subject.What we can do is to inform as many people as possible about this violation against Human Rights.
