‘Grazing reserves’ll end Fulani menace’

Chairman of the Association of Cattle Farmers, Imam Hanafi Sonde, has called for the creation of grazing reserves as a way of ending conflict between Fulani herdsmen and crop farmers in the country.

His suggestion comes on the heels of the death of five Fulani herdsmen and three locals in separate clashes at Dwibease and Wheewhee communities in the Kwahu East District of the Eastern Region.

Scores of residents have fled the area for safety to nearby villages.

Reacting to this development, Imam Sonde said: “I was there myself. I was at Kwahu and Kintampo and the final solution to this problem is just one thing; that is to be able to have grazing reserves for the herdsmen so that there will be a demarcation between the crop farmers and the herdsmen. As long as we’ve not gotten there, being able to prevent these clashes will be very hard. We are also not happy with clashes leading to loss of lives…”

Meanwhile, the Eastern Regional Security Council will be meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, October 31 over the clashes, and killings of Fulanis and crop farmers in the region.
