Abstract
The human population of east Africa is very unevenly distributed across the region and, as can be seen in Figure 1, is concentrated around Lake Victoria, in the highlands, and along the coast. The conjectural limits of tsetse (Glossina spp.) in 1973 (Ford and Katondo, 1977) are also indicated. Disregarding the more arid areas of north-eastern Kenya and northern Tanzania, where tsetse are generally unable to survive because it is too dry, there is a reasonably good match between tsetse distribution and areas of low human population density.
