Slums in Kenya Description
Slums in Kenya have no pattern as they are found in every corner of every major town housing bottom of the pyramid individuals. Although the government embarked on a slum upgrade programme aimed at addressing the housing problems affecting these area little has be done or there is nothing to show for the much the government has done.
Much of the Slums in Kenya are government owned and the rest is owned by lords in the slums who build the shacks and rent them out to 99 percent of the tenants. The averge are of a room in the slum is 12ft by 12ft with mud or corrugated tin walls.
The water and electricity in these Slums in Kenya is an issue as much of the power in these slums is tapped illegally from the KPLC power mains and water from the pipelines taking water to uptown estates where Slums in Kenya are mostly located.
Medical facilities are mainly provided by international NGOs which never seems to run out of people as many of the individuals cannot afford medical services in mainstream health sector due to cost as most of them are unemployed.
Some of these slums in Kenya include;
- Kibera in Nairobi
- Bondeni in Nakuru
- Baba Ndogo
- Fuata nyayo
- Ziwa la ng’ombe
