Nairobi, Kenya — Nairobans are living through the worst war in their history.
In this new reality, it is not uncommon to see young women in uniforms and holding guns in the streets, or to hear of the horrors of sexual assault or of forced displacement.
In many ways, the war is being watched in Nairobes streets as well.
In 2017, the UN estimated there were at least 15,000 internally displaced people in Kenya, and that the war had left thousands homeless.
The war is not just a crisis in Nkandla, but in the country as a whole.
On the outskirts of Nairobin, a woman named Djaeda holds her child.
The child is crying, but the mother is crying for her.
The mother and child, Djaida says, are part of the city’s “war of hope.”
Djaede has lived in Nukara for over two years, and for the past three months, she has been living with a young woman, whose name she can’t remember.
Her name is Djaesa al-Djidi.
She lives with her aunt and uncle in a building with a window on one side and a small garden on the other.
The two of them are a couple, and she doesn’t know whether she will ever get to see her husband.
Djaeden is one of more than 300,000 people displaced from their homes in Nuku’alofa and the surrounding area.
The United Nations estimates there are between 12,000 and 15,500 people living in Nakandla.
This is just a small fraction of the tens of thousands of people displaced in the war.
Djoeda is one such person.
She and her family have lived in a two-room home with a small courtyard for her three children.
On this day, the courtyard is empty, and there is no one else around.
They don’t know if the man who has been standing outside with a gun is still in the house or not.
The family lives on a meager salary from a local NGO, and their rent comes from the government.
As the war has continued, their rent has skyrocketed.
They were able to pay for food and electricity by selling a small piece of meat, but this has been taken away from them.
Their only income is from the charity work they do.
Djeda says that she is not allowed to leave the house, and the only way she is able to visit her family is to pay them a visit at the charity office.
Every morning, she wakes up at 4 a.m. and takes the stairs to the charity building.
This has been difficult for her to do.
“I used to go to school, but because of the war, I don’t have much time.
I have to work,” she says.
When she is home, she sleeps in her home with the children and cooks for them.
She cannot eat meat, and so she has to get it from the supermarket.
But even that is difficult for Djedes family.
“It is difficult to make ends meet, because they don’t get enough money to buy groceries or for food,” she adds.
“We are in a bad situation.”
Djida says she has no one to talk to about the war and the conflict.
She says she knows the men who are in the military, but she is afraid to tell anyone.
Her aunt, who is also a mother, told her to go back to Nukaria and that she will be safe there.
“There is a lot of hate and violence here,” she said.
“My mother is a nurse.
She works in the hospital and her husband is a soldier.”
The war has also affected the lives of women, who are forced to leave their homes and work in order to survive.
“Women are forced into selling their bodies for food, because of our war,” Djede says.
“Even if I have money, I cannot afford to go out of my house.”
Many women have fled to Nakorofa, in order not to be separated from their families.
The city of Nakomandla is home to the most women, but Nakome, the area of Nukualofaa that is home for the majority of Nkande’s family, has a high concentration of men.
Many women who have stayed in Naka’amun in Nafu and Nnagalofia have said that the men there are threatening them and harassing them, according to the UN.
Njabela, the woman from Nakamun, told me that her husband beat her and her daughters when she left for work.
She said her husband was not allowed out of her house.
The woman, who asked to be identified only as Njaba, told the UN that her family members were afraid of returning to Nukuamun and of seeing their relatives. When I
