Nyota told us that a majority of women in her area are widows because their husbands were killed during the wars.
This drove them to sell their bodies so that they could support their orphans. Once the husband is killed, the husband’s family members do not support the widow. They leave her alone with her children, and sometimes, she is chased away from the husband’s family; thus, everything the husband gave her: land, animals, clothes, etc. is taken from her.
These women now are suffering a lot, and some were again raped by militants....
