Sad Reality as Mukuru Residents 'Sell' Themselves to Earn a Living After Demolitions

Slowly picking up the pieces after a series of demolitions, Mukuru Kwa Njenga Slums is one of the five biggest informal settlements in Nairobi's South Eastern.

Rose Anyango, a community health volunteer in Kwa Njenga Slums has opened up on how life has changed after the demolitions. Rose admits that the demolition changed how people survive.

According to Rose, young women have resorted to 'selling' their bodies as a full time job. As other women prepare food for their children in the evening, others take baths, dress nicely and begin roaming around in the dark. They're going nowhere, just looking for customers ready to 'buy them'.

A woman residing to close to Al Huda mosque has even turned her tent into a brothel. It is a brand new tent she has beautifully set up and furnished it with a new 4-inch mattress with a mosquito net. Reportedly, she rents the tent for as low as Ksh. 100 but the amount might change depending on the time one spends in the tent.

The woman who also is 'business' brings her clients to the tent. Women reportedly earn from as low as sh 20 to sh 500 per session with clients coming from Tassia, Mukuru Kwa Reuben, Lungalunga, Sinai and Pipeline.
