Masai Demand Tanzanian Government Reject Plans for Hunting Reserve

  • Henry Ridgwell

Around 5,000 Masai are gathering in their ancestral lands in Tanzania to discuss allegations that the government plans to evict them and sell off the land to build a game hunting reserve for rich Arabs. Tanzania’s president has dismissed the claims in a post on social media site Twitter. A global petition against the plans attracted over 2 million signatures. Henry Ridgwell reports from London.
