Illegal electricity taps are often the cause of treacherous fires. Like some time ago in Mukuru Kwa Reuben, Nairobi. People come home from work and find their home in ashes. Fire brigades come often late or without water. “If we had permanent houses, we could prevent such fire incidents,” one of the slum residents claims. This illegal tapping from nearby factories is very dangerous in these crowded informal settlements. It is time to bring safe, reliable and affordable electricity connections to the slum dwellers in Nairobi, Kenya.
