Umoja Estates are situated in Nairobi populous Eastland's suburbs whose gateway is Jogoo road, among the oldest roads.
The estates exist in three, Umoja I, Umoja II neighbouring each other and Umoja III situated along Kangundo Road.
For long time, the estate has housed families preferred for its conducive environment and availability of infrastructure. The estate's were secure, well lit street lights, availability of clean water and recreational places in the neighborhood.
Sewerage well controlled, and Nairobi city council would come oftenly to collect garbage and there used be no chance for a dirty environment.
Several years down the line, the estates sold their status to a highly ambitious Nairobi population. Many people moved in and what was left was an overstretching resource.
Gangs moved in, cartels set foot and what resulted from it all was a very populous Umoja with no more controlled entry and exit. Sewerage went loose, and water became a scarce commodity.
The estates experienced a surge in homicide related cases. Gangs were taking over the estates stealing from innocent residents.
Over time the estates are loosing its glory and most of it's occupants, government officers started considering other areas, neighbouring Komarick and Saika estates.
Today they look more of slum estates, with makeshift structures making their way in. That turned out to be more of a threat to the residents.
Umoja has lost its liking.
