According to a photo shared In the 'Hapo Zama za kale' Facebook group, the Buru Buru you see today is a pale shadow of what it was in the 70s and 80s.
The houses were all white and had some short picket fences in the front yards and bougainvillea fences in the back yards, with each yard surrounded by grass.
Buru had been deemed an estate for the wealthy back then as it was always clean and organized unlike now when it is considered one of the biggest slums in Nairobi.
This photo gathered a lot of reactions from Kenyans, with some telling of how they used to dream of living there.
Below are some of the reactions from netizens.
