Desperation as Ethiopia’s hunger growsby Gavin Hewitt
It is a strange and unsettling ride west from the Ethiopian town of Shashamene. The fields are vibrant green. There is water in the creeks. The soil is a deep rich burgundy.
However, the people here speak of a “green drought”.
It is the time when the land is full of new shoots but there is no food. It happens because the last rains failed and few crops were planted.
