Based on the fact that the insect is unique to African ecology and its impact both on humans and livestock, can it be argued that the lag of Africa's development today is at least partially due to the tsetse fly? I am familiar with Alsan (2015) but currently looking for a more broad perspective. Was looking for more sources but could not find anything relevant. Also, curious if the effect it has today on livestock is comparable with the effect it had in precolonial times?
