Critical issues in the slums are the poor drainage and sanitation conditions. Mama Kathure, a Pumwani resident: ‘When people dump their waste, the trenches get blocked and then with rains the water flows back into the houses. Very dangerous for the health of our children’. The youth groups from Lungalunga slums produce biogas from human waste and use that for hot showers in their public toilet. Your reporters for African Slum Journal are Benjamin, Peris and Issa.
