|The Daily Corruption Spread|
Is the perception of a resource scarcity to blame for corruption?
There was a lot of “idle” land, probably by design or because of nature. The population was low, and there was a lot of forest coverage in the main population areas.
What is certain though was that there was a lot of disease and pests which affected animals, crops and people alike. This especially decimated animals stocks, made farming a challenge and in effect, checked the growth of animal, farmland and people.
It was a challenge to farm in forests, and it was even more challenging to rear livestock due to issues like mosquitoes, tsetse flies and the once infamous rinderpest.
Nature probably had her plan for how the state of things would continue playing out. Whatever this plan was, we will never know, for the colonisation of Kenya rudely disrupted this arrangement.
