Irrigating Crops from River Water

« Back to Africa's Last Frontier: Ethiopia's Omo Valley, March 2010 National Geographic Magazine

People from Duss move to Kundama Village if the pump is working so they can have a little irrigated plot of land.  The truth is, however, that pumps do not work so well in the stone age.  AK-47's work GREAT in the stone age, but pumps DO NOT.  .. Most of the time they don't have enough fuel to run the pump and if the pump breaks they have to send word to Dimeca officials and it can take about a month to get it fixed.
