The problem is that Somali's lack creativity and they all copy each other, a while back I was having some conversation regarding Sudan Grass for livestock feed, it doesn't matter how great your explanation is, they simply won't touch it, they more interested in more Hijab stores, hotels, cafe's and restaurants.
It's a useless endeavour, I have been very big on agriculture reading this year, the land in our possession will be used to grow the food, I am going through it with my parents, they even found an expert in this field that will help them (so they could learn from him as well)
Trying to explain "composting" your waste to use for fertilisers was the toughest barrier to go through, it's shocking how even the farmers back home are mostly clueless on this, the kid is looking to raise several 100K's to scale this and go large growing all kinds of food, all the people we have spoken to thus far are not interested, because it's a lengthy process.
This is the great challenge back home if you want to do anything that's creative, I know your big in agriculture as well, you should do some videos on this, every white kid in the village knows the very basics on this, even those I work with can explain how to grow your own food from A-Z, but not a single foreigner can tell me.
The blood money is a contentious topic because if it's not paid, usually a large scale conflict develops with 100's dying.
The family of the deceased doesn't accept handing over the killer because they don't deem his life as important as the one he killed, so as a result they will go out and kill a big shot from his tribe and this quickly escalates into a full blown war that you could have stopped.
It's interesting you mentioned sudani grass as feed. Alfa alfa hay and other types are used to fatten livestock which increases it's value. Even the largest exporters of somali livestock have still not understood the concept of fattening your livestock before sending to carabta. The arabs buy it for dirt cheap, put it in their maxjar in saudi and fatten it for a month and make a killing.
Do you think agriculture is a money making business back home, say you had all the facilities (Fertile land for commercial production, water well & pumps, sprinkler system). Or is production stifled by the fact that the highlanders next door bring in so large quantities
I never understood the concept of somalis building hotels, meesha yaaba imanaya?
