Learning Lessons from Mandera

Mandera County is remote and largely unknown to most Kenyans, let alone to foreigners. It is an arid and sometimes forbidding region that borders Ethiopia and Somalia, a place of pastoralists and semi-pastoralists who live much as they have done for hundreds of years. For the county to suddenly be in the media spotlight following a suspected al-Shabaab attack must come as much a shock as the attack itself.

Certainly those seeking to understand and tackle such acts of terror need to pause, reflect and look for meaning....
