Landforms- Lakes, Rivers, Valleys, and Highlands.
Climate- The climate is hot except at Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. It is cooler and a better place to live. People
Who are they?
Asian and arabic-speaking people blend cultures in the East.
What are they like?
Many Africans came to work to help build the first railroad. Asians often became successful merchants in East Africa. Others came to work on sugar plantations on the islands of the Indian Ocean. Most of the people orginally came from Southeast Asia or India.
Issues: Yes, poverty is in East Africa and many are without homes, food, clean water, and other needed items. Even the hardest labor doesn't do anything for crops. East Africa is unevenly populated as well.
East Africa's government
The government is a democratic government and no, it is not effective. The government is not doing its job in East Africa because there's a lot of violence. Sometimes the same ethnic groups are fighting with each other. they also had a war with Ethiopia for many years. after the war, somalias government collapsed. In 2007 they had a transitional government in place, but it was struggling. In 2003, in sudan an ethnic conflict broke out. more than 400,000 people were killed, and about 2.5 million people lost their homes. The conflict was called a genocide by the US. Conflicts in the region are caused by increased violence, weapons, refugees, and lawlessness. Would Ilike to visit this region today?
No, I wouldn't want to visit East Africa because of poverty, ethnic violence, and bad economy. In Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Sudan there are many conflics and have threateneed the stability of the entire region due to increased violence, weapons, refugees, and lawlessness. In 2003, an ethnic conflict had broken out in the Western Sudan. The U.S. Government has called the conflict a genocide. More than 400,000 people have been killed and about 2.5 million have lost their homes. Many are without shelter, food, and water and the ethnic violence is making it a lot worse. So no, I would not like to visit East Africa because of those terrible conditions.
