Kenya’s Housing Minister is under enormous pressure to address the widespread housing shortage in his country. Kibera is the largest slum in Africa and is home to more than 800,000 residents, but it measures just two square kilometers, about half the size of Manhattan’s Central Park. Most of the houses are single-story buildings and the density is 3,000 people per acre (compared to 43 in London, 100 in New York City, and 143 in Tokyo), making it one of the areas most densely populated in the world. Slum living conditions are miserable by Western standards and receive little or no support from local government due to the stagnant bureaucracy that has apparently misled the interests of the neighborhood.
