In the year 2005, the estate had an estimated population of 29,616. The largest public maternity hospital in Kenya is based in Pumwani.

The government has set a plan to start the construction of low-income housing in Starehe Nairobi county which will take Ksh 12 billion to complete.

The construction will be launched by Presidential William Ruto next week as the land preparation continues. The construction which will take 3 to 4 years will be beneficial to more than 6,000 families from within the area.

Residents are requested to acknowledge the development as it will be beneficial to them. Churches, playgrounds and schools are also a part of the construction plan. 

The building plan will act as a job opportunity as people are encouraged to apply. Painting, carpentry and tiling are some of the jobs available at the site. Starehe point will employ directly and indirectly more than 10,000 people. Buildher, an organisation supporting and training women in the construction field will be one of the partners in the development plans. Women are as well encouraged to apply and take advantage of the opportunity.
