Cattle Herder

Today's picture is from 1936, and it shows a cattle herder in the Namanga Region of Kenya. You can see he is fully equipped, including a pretty impressive sword/knife.

Some of you have asked what Africa looks like today. Well, in some areas it looks much like the pictures above, but the video below shows a recent drive around Kitale Town.
