Transcript of Shifta War

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli This was occured between the periods of 1963-1967.
This was between the ethnic Somalis of the NFD (Nothern Frontier District) which is a region which is exclusively inhabited by these eithnic Somalis. The main cause of this was was because there eithnic Somalis desperately wanted to joing with the people in Greater Sonmalia. The Kenyan Govenrment named this conflict Shifta or Shufta which generally means rebel, out law or bandit.
The Shifta War It was because of this war The "Shifta" that led to
the development or introduction of bandits in Somalia at the time. The CIGSU counter insurance
Genral Service Units forced the civilians to live in protected villages. There was not much to live off of so they had to eat their pastoral livelihood in these villages. even if the Somalis did not agree to their livestocks death it was done any because the Service units and people needed food. This Shifta war ended in the late Summer of 1967
when the Prime Minister of the Somali Republic signed a ceasefire with Kenya. but obviously this signing did not stop the violence. It only made people split up into smaller groups or sections called banditries. who caused a number of agitation and minor violent battes but nothing to the extent or degree of the Shifta War.. in fact the disruptions caused by Banditry occures foe several decades.
This also caused a major shift in the lifestyles of
the pople who had lived in the district. A shift from pastorial (herding stock) and transhumant (movement with lifestock) lifestyle to sedentary (lazy whatever happens happens) urban lifestyles. in other words people started to care less about livestock more about resting and recreation.
