One of the reasons why populations are increasing in the capital cities of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania is because more people are moving in from the rural areas.

Often they go in search of work – long-term drought and political changes mean there is less land, less water and less jobs. They leave behind the century-old traditions of a semi-nomadic pastoralist lifestyle.

Guturo, Joyce, Tabitha, Mark and John talk about how their lives have changed since they've been living in the cities.
