Camels on farms
Farmers in North Darfur's Kutum locality have complained of herders who drive camels into their farms, sometimes threatening the farmer by force of arms. The grazing destroys the vegetables and fruit.
Speaking to Radio Dabanga, farmers reported that last Saturday and Sunday, herders drove their cattle to graze on the gardens on the banks of the river (wadi) in Kutum, causing the destruction of “large areas planted with okra, watermelons, tomatoes and fruit orchards”.
They estimated the losses at thousands of Sudanese pounds, and called on the authorities to stop the herders' activities so that they can harvest the crops.
