Abstract
In East Africa the trypanosomiasis and tsetse problem has an importance out of all proportion to the mortality caused to man and livestock. Vast areas are uninhabited because of tsetse infestation and scarcity of surface water. In other areas the increasing African population and their livestock are so overcrowded that the soil can hardly support them. Soil erosion and loss of fertility are the inevitable result. This overstocking and overpopulation of many of . the settled areas ought to be alleviated by the excess population and stock moving into some of the neighbouring uninhabited country. The presence of tsetse fly often makes this difficult if not impossible.
