This phenomenon directly contrasts other parts of the world where the normal precipitation pattern has an even quantity of precipitation per month. In Africa, the summertime from May to October is when the most rain would predictably fall. [...]

[...] The tsetse fly thrives in hot humid conditions. Thus people in these areas rely on goats for milk, and other animals for meat. It is evident, made publicized by the media and scientists, that the Sahara is creeping southern ever so slowly year by year.
