Kenya: ‘We are like rubbish in this country’: Forced evictions in Nairobi, Kenya
Approximately half the population of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, live in slums and informal settlements. Residents of these settlements frequently live under the threat of forced evictions. This report focuses on two such informal settlements. City Carton was demolished in May 2013 and some 400 families were forcibly evicted: many remain homeless. Around 3,000 families living in the other settlement, Deep Sea, fear eviction as the Kenya Urban Road Authority plans to construct a road through the settlement. This report calls for effective remedies for victims of forced evictions.
