The Shifta conflict in Kenya of the 1960s involved the Somali ethnic community of the Northern Frontier Districts engaging in guerilla war in pursuit of self-determination. Mburu (Ph.D., war studies, Kings College, London, UK) analyzes the conflictMoreThe Shifta conflict in Kenya of the 1960s involved the Somali ethnic community of the Northern Frontier Districts engaging in guerilla war in pursuit of self-determination.

Mburu (Ph.D., war studies, Kings College, London, UK) analyzes the conflict in the context of the geopolitics of the Horn of Africa, arguing that the roots of the conflict lay in unfair colonial legislation that was a precursor to the disaffection of the Somali community of Wajir, Garissa, and Mandera. He describes the politics of the British administration of the NFD, the course of the guerilla war, and its place within the Cold War politics of Africa.
