Have you ever visited a place where do didn’ t see a trace of any man? Then you must try visiting this town. Umoja Uaso is a strange town in Kenya that is known to have banned all mem from entering its boundaries. The town, established in 1990, is an all- female matron town situated close to the town of Archers Post in Samburu County, 380 km from the capital, Nairobi. It was established by Rebecca Lolosoli, a Samburu lady, as a haven for destitute overcomers of brutality against ladies, and youngsters running from constrained relationships.
Samburu ladies have a subordinate situation in their general public. They are not permitted to claim land or different kinds of property, like domesticated animals. Ladies themselves are viewed as property of their spouses. They can be dependent upon female genital mutilation, constrained marriage with the seniors, assault, and abusive behavior at home. From that point forward, an argument was raised against the British military for the assaults of more than 1, 400 Samburu ladies. The case was cleared. These ladies were deserted by their spouses since they were viewed as ” contaminated. ” Other men drove the ladies out of their homes dreading they would now contract physically communicated infections from their assaulted wives.
After numerous ladies ended up without homes, they made Umoja.  Rebecca Lolosoli is one of the organizers of Umoja and thought of making a town for ladies when she was recuperating after being beaten for standing up. Ultimately fifteen ladies met up to establish the first town in 1990.
Accordingly, a few men laid out their own, in the end, fruitless towns close by. The men attempted to set up an opponent specialty business or would attempt to discourage vacationers from halting at Umoja. The ladies at last purchased the land the men were involved in.
The locals initially began by selling vegetables they purchased from others since they didn’ t have the foggiest idea of how to cultivate themselves. This was not exceptionally effective, and the town went to offering customary specialties to sightseers. The Kenya Wildlife Services paid heed and assisted the ladies with gaining from fruitful gatherings in regions like the Maasai Mara, to further develop Umoja’ s business. The ladies likewise had help from Kenya’ s Heritage and Social Services and the Ministry of Culture.
After Lolosoli visited the United Nations in 2005, men in the adjoining town recorded a legal dispute against her, wanting to close down the town. In 2009, Lolosoli’ s previous spouse went after the town, compromising her life. For a period, the ladies escaped the town for their security. The ladies of the town at present own the actual land.
