    This paper looks at issues of gender and tenure in African customary law. It argues that under all systems of law in many African countries, ownership of land and associated resources is very much anchored in patriarchy. It decries the failure to isolate positive aspects of customary law and the preponderance of women-unfriendly customary law which influences statutory and other forms of law. Part II of the paper provides the conceptual and theoretical premises of the paper. It looks at patriarchy, gender and law and their impact on tenure relations emphasising the male dominance.

    Soil erosion and surface runoff are consequences of integration of several factors and processes within a catchment. The use of a rainfall simulator and run off plots provides a valuable research tool and are often used in soil erosion and surface runoff studies. Cheruiyot (1984) used this approach to study infiltration rates and sediment yield in Kiboko, Kenya. The present study used the same method but with a mini-rainfall simulator (Kamphorst, 1987) to study the effects of different land use treatments on soil loss and surface runoff.

    Understanding of runoff sources and sinks coupled with development of rubost models
    that provide rapid and less expensive assessment of the impacts of land management on
    surface runoff is critical in the management of soil and water resources. In this study, a
    stratified sampling procedure was used to set up 51 runoff plots on representative land
    use types on the three slope zones in the landscape. On each slope zone a completely
    randomized design was utilized. Runoff measurements were done for 120 rainfall events

    For a long time, trypanosomosis, spread by the tsetse fly Glossina, constrained human settlement in the Lambwe Valley, a south-western Kenya rangeland. After lengthy efforts to control tsetse over many years, the valley is currently experiencing an increase in human population growth rate, and rapid changes in land-use and cover are taking place.

    Water resources Within the River Njoro watershed have become degraded due to high population growth rate and change in land use upsetting environmental stability. Land cover classification using Landsat images (Baldyga et al., 2004) shows loss of about 20% of forested areas between 1986 and 2003 in the Watershed. The forested and large-scale farm areas have been converted mainly into srnall-scale mixed agriculture and human settlements. These changes have impacted negatively on the ecological integrity and hydrologic processes in the watershed (Shivoga.

    Land is a primary resource for international tourism development. The relationship of indigenous
    systems of land tenure, and the history of land alienation to tourism in African nations, however, is
    problematic. Governments of some African nations are now emphasizing the traditional land
    rights of indigenous people in determining land use for economic development. Land is a key
    resource for the local participation of the Kenyan people in development, and indigenous land
