Should slums be demolished? In Mukuru slums a court order has been set to demolish homes in Mukuru slum area and evict people who might have lived there most of their lives. Because they do not have title deeds, they cannot claim the land as theirs. Watch also the Mukuru slum Journal No Man’s land. At Bunge Mtaani Mukuru slum residents debate what has to be done. ” If there will be people coming to demolish, they should also be involved and tell us how we will be compensated.”
Bunge Mtaani project – ‘Parliament of the street’: Once a month in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, Nairobi community Media House screens short documentaries for an audience of one of the twenty slums that Nairobi is ‘rich’. Residents participate actively. They raise relevant issues from the slums. After the broadcast the residents can actively have their say on these issues. The documentaries give the slum dwellers a voice!
