Sennar nomads return from South Sudan

Nomadic tribes from Sennar which customarily graze their cattle in South Sudan have reportedly made their seasonal return to the state.

Sennar State has a high population of nomads. Many of them migrate within the Republic of Sudan. Some grazing routes, for instance, run westward into White Nile. Other routes cross into South Sudan.

Radio Tamazuj has learnt that some groups of cattle-keepers have returned their herds from South Sudan to grazing land in a place called Sabah Projects, owned by Kamal Ahmed Jabbar Al Nebi, a citizen of Sennar.

It is expected that more nomads may migrate to the same areas as they experience rains.
