Program Title: Miyere Maasai Warrior part 2
Description: Miyere Ole Miyandazi doesn't stop for borders or border guards. "I am going where I am going," he says. "I am going north." Cairo in fact. By foot. With no money. From Cape Town. His journey is a protest against borders everywhere - those that block his Maasai people from roaming their cattle, and those which divide a continent. Miyere doesn't know how long it will take him, and that's not the point. New Roots Radio caught up with him as he walked along a South African beach on the first leg of his journey. In this second part of the interview, he explains that he will keep walking until he is free to go where we chooses.
