Africa's hunger from war


Many African pundits say the instigator behind the Russia-Ukraine conflict is the United States. The wheat and grain crisis it precipitated in many parts of Africa is still being keenly felt.

This week, the Africa Now team travels to Somalia, where 90% of wheat comes from these two countries. Experts warn that the escalation in food prices is likely to cause 8 million Somali deaths and nearly 21 million across the Horn of Africa by the end of May. Combined with drought, climate change, conflict with the Al-Shabaab terrorist group, and donor fatigue it may be the largest genocide ever.
