Kenya: How the other half lives: Nairobi’s slum-dwellers, Kenya

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: AFR 32/006/2009

In Nairobi the burgeoning slums and the unacceptable living conditions for their residents are testament to the government's failure to uphold the right of adequate housing for all. The key obstacle is the lack of legal security of tenure so residents of these settlements are particularly vulnerable to forced evictions. In this document Amnesty Internal calls on Kenya's president to immediately stop all forced evictions, to ensure genuine consultation with affected communities and to ensure that the slum upgrading programme complies with rights to adequate housing.
