Challenges Faced by the Mbororo Fulani

 

Challenges Faced by the Mbororo Fulani.

 Perhaps it is the lack of knowledge about Mbororo culture and the problems they face, which has served to almost wholly marginalize them from mainstream Cameroon society. The Mbororo-Fulani are in conflicts with indigenous farmers, ranchers and among themselves. Insecurity of land tenure and lack of technical skills detract them from investing in their environment.

Bushfire, deforestations and encroaching agriculture are process, which are currently restricting the livestock production capacity of their pastures. Although a significant tax contributor, the Mbororo receives virtually very little state support. Level of illiteracy is high (86%) in some communities (Waddington, 1997). The low esteem in which woman are held detracts from Mbororo incapacity to modernise due to complex cultural issues, orthodox approaches to facilitating development processes, among the Mbororo-Fulani have consistently failed (Woazeneh, 2001).
