Kenya: Slum Dwellers On Railwayline to Relocate

Thousands of slum dwellers living along the railway line in Kibera and Mukuru slums will soon be relocated to pave way for a modern commuter railway system.

Amnesty International Director Justus Nyangaya says residents have not been informed when they will be moved which poses a challenge as an impromptu relocation will be resisted if a timeline for the exercise isn't made public.
