In this study a sample of fourteen households was used. Purposive stratified sampling was adopted to select the sample. Using existing data from a twenty-year panel study on the early resettlement schemes by Kinsey and others, we were able to identify households and group them according to certain social characteristics that at the time were thought to be important to gain access to some of the different characteristics in the sample population. We 11 grouped the households according to their wealth-ranking (using Kinsey’s data on household size, cattle-ownership and maize yield), family size, sex and age of household head, and then selected the households from the resultant sub-groups.

The position of modernisation perspectives (TOT), in which there is a belief in the presence of knowledge in some people, and its absence in others, who needed to be schooled, is not tenable so far as this book is concerned. People are not regarded as having no knowledge but as possessing maybe different sorts of knowledge. ‘Knowledge does not have only one way of expressing itself, but manifests itself in a variety of ways’ (Haverkort 2003: 12) Post-modernist tendencies, and globalisation discourses now pervasive in academic debates and research circles, have made it imperative to question the dichotomy between local knowledge and scientific/‘universal’ knowledge.
